One of the fundamental things that we do as DBAs is write T-SQL code and longtime author here, Michael Coles, has written a new book on programming practices in SQL Server 2005. Just released is Pro T-SQL 2005 Programmer's Guide, providing comprehensive and detailed coverage of the major features in T-SQL, including:
- stored procedures
- user-defined functions
- dynamic SQL
- the new XML data type
- and more!
