SQL Server 2012, Part 7 of 9: Introduction to T-SQL

with Don Kiely

This course will start with a quick overview of the history of SQL, then dive right into using T-SQL. You’ll learn about batches and scripts, how to declare and use variables—including the inevitable data type conversions—as well as the rich supply of operators available. Next you’ll learn about some of the many built-in T-SQL functions, for doing things like working with numbers, string manipulation, as well as global functions for getting state information. You’ll also learn about how to rank results using special functions and the OVER clause.
