Introduction to .NET for DBAs Using Visual Studio 2008

This course will give the working DBA sufficient skills with .NET so that they can use it effectively in all the areas supported by SQL Server. The course starts with learning Visual Basic language concepts, including Data Types, Variables, and Classes and Objects while building simple console applications. Then it moves on to handling exceptions by using try/catch blocks and other programming tools - ADO.NET will be used for connecting to data sources and related topics. You'll then learn to work with SQL 2008's features like SQL Server Management (SSMS), Object Explorer, Query Editor plus others and then the development feature SQL CLR (Common Language Runtime). Finally, there is an overview of SQL Business Intelligence for 2008.
No previous experience is required with Visual Studio but a basic understanding of SQL Server and core DBA concepts is needed.
