SQL 2012 Developer, Part 05 of 13: Common Language Runtime

with Don Kiely

In this course you’ll learn how to write various kinds of code modules using C# code. You’ll learn the details of creating SQLCLR code manually as well as with Visual Studio. You’ll learn about the Sql data types and how using them can avoid data conversion issues. Most of the code you write will use basic ADO.NET for data access, but there is a special context connection you need to make to the database where the code is executing. I’ll take a close look at creating triggers and user-defined functions, then will explore the security issues of running SQLCLR code in the SQL Server process, and how to make it work. The course wraps up with some recommendations about how to decide whether to use T-SQL or SQLCLR code to create different kinds of code modules.
