What others are saying about this course
It has been a pleasure for me to review Alessandro’s course. The ‘Hands on SQL Server 2012: Expert Programming and Design’ course provides coverage of everything you need to know about programming with SQL Server 2012.
The course is designed for a variety of skill levels, so the beginners can learn SQL Server fundamentals chapter after chapter in a comprehensive way; more experienced developers can improve their knowledge through a lot of external links to study the subject in depth.
The course is well written, easy to follow and includes detailed descriptions, often with a short video, to get an understanding of what SQL Server programming is.
Microsoft MVP SQL Server
The videos were very clear, the examples were good, and there weren’t indications of a lot of “fixes” added to the content. I’ve seen some videos by non-native speakers where the video was very choppy video because they made so many corrections and amendments. This is not the case in this course.
