Free SQL Server DBA Fundamentals training (DFW) – completed

Free.  In person.  Interactive.

Update: This is in-person only…not online or Webex at this time.

I really like training and teaching the basics of anything to people new to it.  Right now that is SQL Server, and cycling (I am Kevin3NF or CoachKev depending…).  Every day on the various forums I see the same questions over and over on basic tasks…and the askers go away with a solution but very often they don’t get the understanding to be able to resolve the issue on their own the next time.

So…if you are in or near the Dallas/Ft. Worth, Texas area and have a couple of hours free after work once every 2 weeks come join me for some very informal training.

Target audience:

  • Managers
  • Developers
  • SysAdmins
  • Students (college, tech schools, etc.)
  • Very junior/accidental DBAs that are struggling to stay afloat

If you are already a DBA, this is probably not for you unless you are just starting out.

RSVP for Day 5 here

5 weeks, every other Wednesday 6-8pm starting on May 24, 2017 in Richardson, TX.

  •  Day 1 (May 24):
    • Intro to databases, with a little history thrown in
    • Installing SQL Server 2016/2014 (on your laptop)
  • Day 2 (June 7):
    • Getting around in SQL Server Management Studio
    • SQL Server Security Model
  • Day 3 (June 21):
    • Backup Basics…the Why, followed by How
    • Creating a database from scratch, or from a backup
  • Day 4 (July 5):
    • Database querying basics – getting the CRUD
    • Indexing and basic performance troubleshooting
  • Day 5 (July 19):
    • High Availability/Disaster Recovery options (overview)
    • Wrap up

If this goes as well as I hope, I will offer it again after some time off.  Maybe in a different part of the Metroplex.

Not sure if this class is right for you?  Ask in the comments, send me a DM on Twitter, or email me.

Thanks for reading!
