This module describes the design and implementation of constraints.

Lessons

Lab : Ensuring Data Integrity through Constraints

Module 5: Introduction to Indexes
This module describes the concept of an index and discusses selectivity, density and statistics. It covers appropriate data type choices and choices around composite index structures.

Lessons

Lab : Implementing Indexes

Module 6: Designing Optimized Index Strategies
Indexes play an important role in enabling SQL Server to retrieve data from a database quickly and efficiently. This module discusses advanced index topics including covering indexes, the INCLUDE clause, query hints, padding and fill factor, statistics, using DMOs, the Database Tuning Advisor, and Query Store.

Lessons

Lab : Optimizing Indexes

Module 7: Columnstore Indexes
This module introduces Columnstore indexes.

Lessons

Lab : Using Columnstore indexes

Module 8: Designing and Implementing Views
This module describes the design and implementation of views.

Lessons

Lab : Designing and Implementing Views

Module 9: Designing and Implementing Stored Procedures
This module describes the design and implementation of stored procedures.

Lessons

Lab : Designing and Implementing Stored Procedures

Module 10: Designing and Implementing User-Defined Functions
This module describes the design and implementation of functions, both scalar and table-valued. Also discusses where they can lead to performance issues.

Lessons

Lab : Designing and Implementing User-defined Functions

Module 11: Responding to Data Manipulation via Triggers
This module describes the design and implementation of triggers.

Lessons

Lab : Responding to Data Manipulation via Triggers

Module 12: Using In-Memory Tables
This module covers the creation of in-memory tables and native stored procedures. Furthermore, advantages of in-memory tables are discussed, for example the removal of transaction blocking.

Lessons

Lab : In Memory OLTP

Module 13: Implementing Managed Code in SQL Server
This module describes the implementation of and target use-cases for SQL CLR integration.

Lessons

Module 14: Storing and Querying XML Data in SQL Server
This module covers the XML data type, schema collections, typed and un-typed columns and appropriate use cases for XML in SQL Server.

Lessons

Lab : Storing and Querying XML Data in SQL Server

Module 15: Working with SQL Server Spatial Data
This module describes spatial data and how this data can be implemented within SQL Server.

Lessons

Lab : Working with SQL Server Spatial Data

Module 16: Storing and Querying Blobs and Text Documents in SQL Server
This module covers full text indexes and queries.

Lessons

Lab : Storing and Querying Blobs and Text Documents in SQL Server

Module 17: SQL Server Concurrency
This module explains how to name, declare, assign values to, and use variables. It also describes how to store data in an array. Concurrency control is a critical feature of multiuser database systems; it allows data to remain consistent when many users are modifying data at the same time. This module covers the implementation of concurrency in Microsoft SQL Server. You will learn about how SQL Server implements concurrency controls, and the different ways you can configure and work with concurrency settings.

Lessons

Lab : SQL Server Concurrency

Module 18: Performance and Monitoring
This module explains how to name, declare, assign values to, and use variables. It also describes how to store data in an array. This module looks at how to measure and monitor the performance of your SQL Server databases. The first two lessons look at SQL Server Extended Events, a flexible, lightweight event-handling system built into the Microsoft SQL Server Database Engine. These lessons focus on the architectural concepts, troubleshooting strategies and usage scenarios.

Lessons

Lab : Monitoring, Tracing, and Baselining
