Students will master the fundamentals of Transact-SQL—and develop their own code for querying and modifying data in Microsoft SQL Server 2016. Led by a SQL Server expert, readers learn the concepts behind T-SQL querying and programming, and then apply their knowledge with exercises in each chapter. Once students understand the logic behind T-SQL, they'll quickly learn how to write effective code.
This edition of the book adds more exercises, a chapter on temporal tables (Chapter 8) and a chapter on T-SQL tips and tricks (Chapter 12). And it updates the content for Microsoft SQL Server through version 2016 and Microsoft Azure SQL Database.
