As Paul recently announced, the entire SQLskills team will be rolling out SQL Server content across several subjects on Pluralsight.com.

My latest course,  “SQL Server: Transact-SQL Basic Data Modification”, which is the companion to “SQL Server: Transact-SQL Basic Data Retrieval”, was just published today by Pluralsight.com.

The course description is as follows:

“If you need to modify data in a SQL Server database, then you need to know how to use the INSERT, UPDATE and DELETE statements. This course starts by explaining how to find information about the tables and columns you want to modify. It then explains the INSERT, UPDATE, and DELETE statements in detail along with various methods for limiting the data being modified. Finally it moves beyond the basic modification statements to more advanced topics like the MERGE statement, error handling and more. More then thirty five demos help to give you a thorough understanding of how to perform these essential operations, all using a freely-available demo environment that you’re shown how to set up and configure. This course is perfect for developers who need to modify data in SQL Server databases, from complete beginners through to more experienced developers who can use some of the modules as reference material. The information in the course applies to all versions from SQL Server 2005 onwards.”

I’ll continue doing other T-SQL courses in the future for various levels, starting with the beginner level content as I’ve been doing.  My next Pluralsight course will be on a different subject related to SQL Server performance, but I’ll hold off on describing it for now.
