Developing Microsoft SQL Server 2014 Databases (M20464) Course Details:

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

This course incorporates material from the Official Microsoft Learning Product 20464: Developing Microsoft SQL Server 2014 Databases. It covers the skills and knowledge measured by Exam 70-464 and along with on-the-job experience, helps you prepare for the exam.
