|Learning SQL on SQL Server 2005|
SQL Server is one of the most powerful database engines used today. Microsoft’s latest release of SQL Server, SQL Server 2005, is a comprehensive database platform that provides secure and reliable storage for both relational and structured data, enabling one to build and manage high-performance data applications. SQL Server 2005’s close integration with Microsoft Visual Studio, the Microsoft Office System, and a suite of new development tools set SQL Server 2005 apart from previous versions and from other database engines. This system allows developers to build, debug, and operate applications faster then ever before.
SQL Server 2005 can be installed on small machines using Microsoft Windows as well as on large servers. In recent years, the computer industry has seen a dramatic increase in the popularity of relational databases and multiuser databases, and the computer industry needs application developers and people who can write SQL code efficiently and correctly for relational and multiuser databases.
