Microsoft SQL Server Skill Sprints

SQL Server is a key Microsoft technology which enables storage of large structured data.

Microsoft SQL Server is a relational database engine developed by Microsoft since 1989. It is by far the most popular proprietary database.

SQL or Structured Query Language was designed nearly 50 years ago to allow easy querying of data from relational databases. It is a common language across all relational databases.

Sometimes called 'Sequel', SQL is very effective at creating, reading, updating and deleting complex data from a database.
