In-house SQL Server crash course
Ask the expert / T-SQL for developers
Usually developers that work with SQL Server primairily have other specialisations, for instance ASP.NET or C#. The database just comes with it. As a result there is often insufficient knowledge to choose from the many possibilities that SQL Server offers, and insufficient understanding to solve structural problems. During an in-house SQL Server crash course I am available for a whole day to tell about the features and internals of SQL Server and to answer a whole lot of questions.
For the participants this means that many things fall in place. Many of the recommendations found on the internet can now be understood (or dismissed because they are clearly wrong). A day long in-house training is a very efficient way to aquire knowledge. The subjects covered are tuned to the needs of the participants. To cover these same subjects in open trainings might take a whole week. It is an intensive experience for the participants (and for me) and an excellent investment for the customer.
A course can be conducted in Dutch or English.
Some of the subjects that may be covered.
database design and programming
SQL Server internals and performance
Often heard: "Let's plan another day..." ☺
I am also happy to deliver a longer course covering all aspects of SQL Server: programming, administration, performance, availability, security and internals. Such a course can easily take two weeks and organizing it is a professional job. Fortunately, there are companies that are very good at this. I teamed up with Eduvision in Apeldoorn. I don't do Microsoft Official Courses, and I am no longer a Microsoft Certified Trainer, but I can fulfill the learning needs in a very flexibly way based on a load of practical experience.
