New course: “SQL Server: Transact-SQL Basic Data Retrieval”

Today I learned that the video course I’ve been working on these last two months has been published on Pluralsight:

SQL Server: Transact-SQL Basic Data Retrieval

The general description from Pluralsight of this course is as follows:

“If you need to retrieve data from a SQL Server database then you need to know how to use the SELECT statement. Joe starts this course with the basics of a SELECT statement and its various sub-clauses, and progresses to how to select from multiple data sources in the same statement and a comprehensive section on the functions available to manipulate, aggregate, and convert data during the select operation. More then fifty 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 query SQL Server databases to retrieve data, 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.”

As mentioned in the description, this course is for SQL Server 2005 and up – and I do cover new applicable functionality provided in SQL Server 2012 as well.

This was a fun course to work on because normally we teach in the 300 to 400 level. This particular course gave me an opportunity to cover the fundamentals and I’m definitely looking forward to recording more.

  1. Joe Sack, can we expect your T-SQL recipe for 2012? As always you are a true SQL Server Maestro. Thanks for all your efforts for putting together this video.

  2. Thank you, Chirag. I appreciate it.

    As for SQL Server 2012 T-SQL Recipes, that project timeline started up right when I joined SQLskills, so I had to let go of my "baby". 🙂

    But the good news is there will be another version coming out through a different author team. I got a chance to at least review 5 of the chapters and it was well done.
