Designing the Data Tier for Microsoft SQL Server 2005

This one-day instructor-led clinic provides students with the knowledge and skill to design the data tier for Microsoft SQL Server 2005. The clinic focuses on teaching database developers working in enterprise environments to understand and decide how application developers are going to access and consume their data. This is a major failure point of database solutions today

Who is the course for

This course is intended for current professional database developers who have three or more years of on-the-job experience developing SQL Server database solutions in an enterprise environment.

What we teach you

  • Choose data access technologies and an object model to support an organizations business needs.
  • Design an exception handling strategy.
  • Choose a cursor strategy.
  • Design query strategies using Multiple Active Result sets (MARS).
  • Design caching strategies for database applications.
  • Design a scalable data tier for database applications.
  • Required skills

  • Have experience reading user requirements and business-need documents. For example, development project vision/mission statements or business analysis reports.
  • Have basic knowledge of the Microsoft .NET Framework, .NET concepts, and service oriented architecture (SOA).
  • Be familiar with the tasks that application developers typically perform.
  • Understand Transact-SQL syntax and programming logic.
  • Be able to design a database to third normal form (3NF) and know the trade offs when backing out of the fully normalized design (denormalization) and designing for performance and business requirements in addition to being familiar with design models, such as Star and Snowflake schemas.
  • Have basic monitoring and troubleshooting skills. Specifically, how to use SQL Profiler and dynamic management views.
  • Have basic knowledge of the operating system and platform. That is, how the operating system integrates with the database, what the platform or operating system can do, and how interaction between the operating system and the database works.
  • Have basic knowledge of application architecture. That is, how applications can be designed in three layers, what applications can do, how interaction between the application and the database works, and how the interaction between the database and the platform or operating system works.
  • Know how to use a data modeling tool.
  • Be familiar with SQL Server 2005 features, tools, and technologies.
  • Have a Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist: Microsoft SQL Server 2005 credential - or equivalent experience.
  • Teaching methods

    Expert instruction with practical examples, computer practice

    Teaching materials

    The student kit includes a comprehensive workbook.
