Microsoft SQL Server 2000: Weekend Crash Course
Alex Kriegel | Hungry Minds | 2001 | ISBN: 0764548409 | 409 pages | 2.8 MB | PDF
SQL Server 2000 is a major milestone for Microsoft, which is trying to position itself as a significant player in the database market. The demand for databasedriven sites on the Internet is exploding (some major sites are running SQL Server 2000 as their back end, Microsoft included), creating a demand for qualified people who understand the product—from technical support people to analysts to programmers without database experience.
With so many SQL Server books on the market you may wonder why there is any need for another one. There is more than one way to tell a story, and I like to think that this book offers a special angle from which to approach the rather complex topic of Relational Database Management Systems in general and SQL Server 2000 in particular.
I intend for this book to provide a no-nonsense, hands-on introduction to SQL Server for the widest audience possible: technical-support people whose company product includes SQL Server as part of its solution, small companies’ “jacks of all trades” doing in-house maintenance, beginning and intermediate programmers breaking into the field or switching careers or upgrading from some other database system, managers who would like to know what SQL Server can do for them without getting involved in a “holy war” of database vendors—and so on.
