Developing Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Databases Training Course
This 5-day instructor-led course introduces SQL Server 2012 and describes logical table design, indexing and query plans. It also focusses on the creation of database objects including views, stored procedures, along with parameters, and functions. Other common aspects of procedure coding, such as transactions, concurrency, error handling, triggers, and SQL CLR are also covered in this course. Also this course helps you prepare for the Exam 70-464.

Module 1: Introduction to SQL Server 2012 and its Toolset
This module stresses on the fact that before beginning to work with SQL Server in either a development or an administration role, it is important to understand the overall SQL Server platform. In particular, it is useful to understand that SQL Server is not just a database engine but it is a complete platform for managing enterprise data.
Module 2: Working with Data Types
This module explains how to use and convert data types. Also it focuses on how to work with specialized data types, and character data types.
Module 3: Designing and Implementing Tables
This module explains how to design, create, and alter tables. Also it focusses on working with schemas.
Module 4: Ensuring Data Integrity through Constraints
This module explains how to enforce data integrity, and implement domain integrity to maintain high quality data. Also it focuses on implementing Entity and Referential Integrity.
Module 5: Planning for SQL Server 2012 Indexing
This module explains the core indexing concepts and effectiveness of each data type commonly used in indexes.
Module 6: Implementing Table Structures in SQL Server 2012
This module explains how tables can be structured in SQL Server databases. Also it focuses on designing and working with clustered indexes.
Module 7: Reading SQL Server 2012 Execution Plans
This module explains how to design additional indexes. Also it focuses on how to read and interpret execution plans.
Execution Plan Core Concepts
Common Execution Plan Elements
Working with Execution Plans
Lab : Reading SQL Server Execution Plans
Actual vs. Estimated Plans
Identifying Common Plan Elements
Querying Cost Comparison
Module 8: Improving Performance through Nonclustered Indexes
This module explains how nonclustered indexes have the potential to significantly enhance the performance of applications and how to use a tool that can help design these indexes appropriately.
Module 9: Designing and Implementing Views
This module introduces Views, and explains how to create and manage Views. Also it focuses on the performance consideration for Views.
Module 10: Designing and Implementing Stored Procedures
This module describes the potential advantages of the use of stored procedures along with guidelines on creating them.
Module 11: Merging Data and Passing Tables
This module reviews the techniques that provide the ability to process sets of data rather than individual rows. Also it focuses on how these techniques can be used in combination with TABLE parameter types to minimize the number of required stored procedure calls in typical applications.
Module 12: Designing and Implementing User-Defined Functions
This module explains how to design and implement user-defined functions that enforce business rules or data consistency, and modify and maintain existing functions written by other developers.
Module 13: Creating Highly Concurrent SQL Server 2012 Applications
This module explains how to use transactions and the SQL Server locking mechanisms to meet the performance and data integrity requirements of your applications.
Module 14: Handling Errors in T-SQL Code
This module explores T-SQL error handling, looks at how it has traditionally been implemented, and how structured exception handling can be used
Module 15: Responding to Data Manipulation via Triggers
This module, explains what DML triggers are and how they enforce data integrity. Also it focuses on the different types of triggers available, and how to define triggers in a database.
Module 16: Implementing Managed Code in SQL Server 2012
This module explains how to use CLR integrated code to create user-defined database objects that are managed by the .NET Framework.
Module 17: Storing XML Data in SQL Server 2012
This module introduces XML and shows how XML data can be stored within SQL Server.
Module 18: Querying XML Data in SQL Server
This module shows how XML data can be queried, including queries written in a language called XQuery.
Module 19: Working with SQL Server 2012 Spatial Data
This module introduces Spatial Data, and explains how to work with SQL Server Spatial Data Types.
Module 20: Working with Full-Text Indexes and Queries
This module introduces Full-Text Indexing and how to implement Full-Text Indexes in SQL Server.
