Microsoft SQL Server 2012 T-SQL Fundamentals

Buy
I’m very happy that Itzik has managed to find the time and energy to produce a book about T-SQL fundamentals. For many years, Itzik has been using his great Microsoft SQL Server teaching, mentoring, and consulting experience to write books on advanced programming subjects, leaving a significant gap not only for the novice and less experienced users but also for the many experts working with SQL Server in roles where T-SQL programming is not a high priority.

When it comes to T-SQL, Itzik is one of the most knowledgeable people in the world. In fact, we (members of the SQL Server development team), turn to Itzik for expert advice on most of the new language extensions we plan to implement. His feedback and consultations have become an important part of our SQL Server development process.

It is never an easy task for a person who is a subject matter expert to write an introductory book; however, Itzik has the advantage of having taught both introductory and advanced programming classes for many years. Such experience is a great asset when differentiating the fundamental T-SQL information from the more advanced topics. But in this book, Itzik is not simply avoiding anything considered advanced; he is not afraid to take on inherently complex subjects such as set theory, predicate logic, and the relational model, introducing them in simple terms, and providing just enough information for readers to understand their importance to the SQL language. The result is a book that rewards readers with an understanding of not only what and how T-SQL works, but also why.

In programming manuals and books, there is no better way to convey the subject under discussion than with a good example. This book includes many examples—and you can download them all from Itzik’s website, http://tsql.solidq.com. T-SQL is a dialect of the official ISO and ANSI standards for the SQL language, but it has numerous extensions that can improve the expressiveness and brevity of your T-SQL code. Many of Itzik’s examples show the T-SQL dialect solution and the equivalent ANSI SQL solution to the same exercise side by side. This is a great advantage for readers who are familiar with the ANSI version of SQL but who are new to T-SQL, as well as for programmers who need to write SQL code that can be deployed easily across several different database platforms.

RabbitMQ in Action: Distributed Messaging for Everyone
Writing this book has been like discovering RabbitMQ itself—encountering a problem that needed solving, but not knowing what the solution looked like. Until May 2010, we didn’t even know each other. We both had been active in the RabbitMQ community for the past two years, but we’d never actually...
Mechanical Logic in Three-Dimensional Space
Mechanical Logic in Three-Dimensional Space

The book explores how build a mechanical inferences by making use of arithmetic operations on a string of numbers representing statements. In this way logic is reduced to a branch of the combinatory calculus. It covers the field of traditional logic by showing that any kind of inference can be mechanically reduced to three-variables and...

Science in the Age of Computer Simulation

Computer simulation was first pioneered as a scientific tool in meteorology and nuclear physics in the period following World War II, but it has grown rapidly to become indispensible in a wide variety of scientific disciplines, including astrophysics, high-energy physics, climate science, engineering, ecology, and economics. Digital computer...
