    Hi,<br /><br />Did anyone heard about or attended the advanced SQL courses offered by SolidQuality Learning.com ? I just want some feed back and some suggestions about which course will be good from a DBA stand point of view.<br /><br />I'm trying to decide between 2 of their courses (unfortunately, I can afford only one <img src='/community/emoticons/emotion-1.gif' alt=':)' /><br /><br />1. SQL Server Internals and Performance Tuning. <br />2. Advanced T-SQL Programming.<br /><br />I know the first one is better for a DBA. But, by looking at the course outline, it appears very basic to me. And I guess we DBAs does need advanced T-SQL skills (atleast to find faults in developer's code <img src='/community/emoticons/emotion-1.gif' alt=':)' /><br />What do you guys think ? Which one of these 2 courses would you choose ?<br />

    S Q L has got solid mentors and I'm sure you will get most out of it.
    For DBA perspective I would suggest to go with course 1 as the second one would be ideal for an existing SQL programmer though TSQL is an essential part for a DBA.

    Course 1 seems to be internals and advantage to know about it.

    Not that I have attended one or am planning to attend, but when you only consider the names mentoring for that company it reads like a who is who in the SQL Server community. <br />Hard to tell which I would choose with seeing what they offer. But personally I tend more to go with alternative 2, because the internals of SQL Server you can get for $50 from the Inside SQL Server book and there is a whole bunch of bad SQL code out there.<br /> <br />[<img src='/community/emoticons/emotion-1.gif' alt=':)' />]<br /><br /><br />Frank<br /<a target="_blank" href=http://www.insidesql.de>http://www.insidesql.de</a><br /<a target="_blank" href=http://www.familienzirkus.de>http://www.familienzirkus.de</a>
