Microsoft Future Ready: Data Query with Transact-SQL (T-SQL)
In this course, we will introduce you to the various ways in which you can use Transact-SQL to query data in a database, taking you from your first SELECT statement through to building complex transactional logic.
Transact-SQL is an essential skill for data professionals and developers working with SQL databases. With this combination of expert instruction, demonstrations, and practical labs, you’ll step from your first SELECT statement through to implementing transactional programmatic logic.
Work through multiple modules, each of which explore a key area of the Transact-SQL language, with a focus on querying and modifying data in Microsoft SQL Server or Azure SQL Database. The labs in this course use a sample database that can be deployed easily in Azure SQL Database, so you get hands-on experience with Transact-SQL without installing or configuring a database server.
