MOC 10776: Developing Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Databases


Description In this course, you will be introduced to SQL Server 2012, logical table design, indexing, and query plans. You will focus on creating database objects, including views, stored procedures, parameters, and functions. You will also learn procedure coding, such as transactions, concurrency, error handling, triggers, and SQL Common Language Runtime (CLR).
