I have recently invested in a new server that is running SBS premium, this come with SQL server and as a result of which I feel its time for me to start getting to grips with it.
I have reasonable knowledge of database design and SQL, extensive experience with access and some with Oracle. I have however never dealt with SQL server.
I generally don't have too much trouble picking up new technologies, and was wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction for learning SQL server from scratch? Is it realistic to be able to achieve this without doing a formal course? I intend to start using it to develop data-driven websites and applications.
Any help, advice and/or pointers are greatly appreciated.
is now begining to sink in what a mamouth task i've undertaken! But I shall not be defeated. I can see this week is going to be a reading week. Can anyone recommend any decent books? (For a bit of bedtime reading and when the eyes are too fried for monitors!).
fortunately i've got the SQL part down (although that is a very good tutorial if any other newbies are reading this). But those other resources seem very useful, this is gonna be a piece of cake!... ahem
