SQL Server is installed behind many third-party applications and behind Microsoft development tools such as Visual Studio. System administrators and developers alike are increasingly responsible for working with and managing SQL Server with no prior exposure or background. Further, they need to understand the basics of relational databases and technologies such as indexing and stored procedures to effectively develop applications. This video course covers SQL Server from their perspectives and gives them what they need to manage these instances. SQL Server 2012 Fundamentals for the Accidental DBA LiveLessons is for power users, developers, IT pros, and anyone who manages SQL Server without formal DBA training. In it, SQL Server MVP Eric Johnson shows you how to perform the essential DBA tasks with SQL Server 2012, even if you’ve never had any DBA training. In these lessons, you will learn at your own pace through realistic hands-on examples that walk you through every step. If you are an accidental DBA—out of the blue expected to run Microsoft SQL Server efficiently, reliably, and securely—when nobody ever taught you how, then this is the video for you. From installation to backup/restore, indexing to scheduling to memory management, you get all the personal, practical DBA training you’ll ever need.
