All the labs for this Developing Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Databases Training course can be performed using the provided virtual machines. However, if you have a Microsoft Windows Azure account and the classroom virtual machines connect to the internet you may be able to connect to your Azure server and database from the classroom. Many of the labs in this course are enabled for you to perform the lab while connected to your own Azure database in the cloud. Your instructor should be able to provide a current list of Azure enabled labs. To acquire a trial Windows Azure account click here.
Below are the some of the new features of SQL Server that has been discussed in this course:
Use of SC collations
Current versions of Windows support extended Unicode collations known as supplementary (or SC) collations. Earlier versions of SQL Server did not support the use of these collations. The course provides details on SQL Server support for these additional collations.
Use of TRY_PARSE, TRY_CONVERT
SQL Server 2012 introduces a number of new functions. The demonstrations in the course utilize many of these new functions such as TRY_PARSE and TRY_CONVERT.
Detailed discussion on IDENTITY constraints
A new more detailed topic on IDENTITY constraints has been added to the course.
Working with SEQUENCES
SQL Server 2012 introduces the concept of sequences. The course now includes a topic and demonstration on the use of sequences.
Slight course reordering to improve overall flow
The course has been reordered from 6232B to improve the overall flow. In particular, constraints are discussed immediately after the initial discussion on logical table design. The course layout offers a more unified experience for the students with each day having a particular flavor.
Use of THROW and comparisons to RAISERROR
SQL Server 2012 enhances the available error-handling options in T-SQL. The module on error-handling has been expanded to show how to use THROW in place of RAISERROR and also to show how to rethrow errors (including system errors) within CATCH blocks using the THROW statement.
Full-globe and arc support in spatial
SQL Server 2012 adds support for geography data-type objects that span more than a single hemisphere. The course discusses the new full globe support and along with new support for curved arc objects.
Customizable nearness in full-text
The course covers how full-text indexing in SQL Server 2012 offers a more customizable and flexible proximity operation than earlier versions of SQL Server.
With onsite Training, courses can be scheduled on a date that is convenient for you, and because they can be scheduled at your location, you don’t incur travel costs and students won’t be away from home. Onsite classes can also be tailored to meet your needs. You might shorten a 5-day class into a 3-day class, or combine portions of several related courses into a single course, or have the instructor vary the emphasis of topics depending on your staff’s and site’s requirements.
The primary audience for this course is IT Professionals who want to become skilled on SQL Server 2012 product features and technologies for implementing a database.
