Why Buy this Book
SQL is full of relationship data with one to many relationships and so is XML. The Marriage between XML and SQL turns out to be far easier than people expected. People often tell me at the end of reading these 5 books they were surprised that this is their favorite.
Each lesson and chapter builds sequentially until you know how to use interoperability with XML, C#, and PowerShell. The good news is that we don’t assume you know a single thing about any of these languages. All the basics and terminology will be taught in the first chapter of each language and build from there into how SQL can use them. The labs have been created and delivered by me over several years of teaching SQL. The labs in this book are the end result, and each one consistently elicits “ah-ha” moments in my classes.
This book is an essential tool. When used correctly, you can determine how far and fast you can go. It has been polished and tuned for your use and benefit. In fact, this is the book I really wish I could have read years ago when I was learning about SQL Server. What took me years of struggle to learn can now be yours in only months in the form of efficient, enjoyable and rewarding study.
