A friend asked about some online resources for learning SQL among other technologies. I sent him a quick list of things I've sent others in the past.
Since I've sent this list multiple times, I should probably post it here. So here:
Microsoft Virtual Academy – Free
The Microsoft Press ever changing list of Free eBooks - Free
Channel 9 - Free
Stanford Database Course - Free
Hands-On Labs - Free
Download SQL Server Developer Edition – Free
Restore backup files for the popular Sample DBs – Free
Pluralsight – Free Trial
LinkedIn Learning (Lynda) – Free Trial
That’s probably enough to keep anyone busy for a few evenings.
