SQL University: Introduction to Indexes

For some crazy reason (probably everyone is on vacation), Jorge Segarra (blog|twitter) who runs SQL University has asked me to submit some material. I’ve got three posts, all coming up next week, that give a very, very basic introduction to indexes in SQL Server.

The Scary DBA

I have twenty+ years experience in IT. That time was spent in technical support, development and database administration. I work forRed Gate Software as a Product Evangelist. I write articles for publication at SQL Server Central, Simple-Talk, PASS Book Reviews and SQL Server Standard. I have published two books, ”Understanding SQL Server Execution Plans” and “SQL Server 2008 Query Performance Tuning Distilled.” I’m one of the founding officers of the Southern New England SQL Server Users Group and its current president. I also work on part-time, short-term, off-site consulting contracts. In 2009 and 2010 I was awarded as a Microsoft SQL Server MVP. In the past I’ve been called rough, intimidating and scary. To which I usually reply, “Good.” You can contact me through grant -at- scarydba dot kom (unobfuscate as necessary).

Looking forward to it, that is, assuming I get my own posts done for the following week :D

And its 1 year past but nothing written here. Hi Steve, I m looking for content related to SQL INDEXING for my blog, this blog is for readers to know what is indexing and I also want to put some instant queries which they can directly use in their applications. I am looking for a content that explains the step by step implementation for indexing.

Looking forward for a kind help from you all.
