MOC 20464 - Developing Microsoft SQL Server Databases 2014

This Developing Microsoft SQL Server Databases 2014 training class introduces SQL Server 2014 and describes logical table design, indexing and query plans. It also focuses on the creation of database objects including views, stored procedures, parameters, and functions. Other common aspects of procedure coding, such as indexes, concurrency, error handling, and triggers are also covered in this course.

The primary audience for this course is IT Professionals who want to become skilled on SQL Server 2014 product features and technologies for implementing a database. The secondary audience for this course is individuals who are developers from other product platforms or previous versions of SQL Server looking to become skilled in the implementation of a SQL Server 2014 database. This course helps individuals prepare for the Exam 70-464.
