SQL Server 2012 Programming Training at Siemens, Bengaluru, 29 – 30 Apr, 2014

Finished SQL Server 2012 Programming training with 13 participants at Siemens, Bengaluru yesterday. The participants had so many queries on fundamentals, which we always ignore while learning. Nice experience.

I’m amazed to see that SQL Server is so vast now…so many new programming features…At times I get confused what to teach and what to ignore…Everything seems important for developers…Unfortunately, couldn’t take pic though…
