The Top Ten Skills You Need for SQL Server

This talk is designed to talk about the most common skills that you need to work with SQL Server on a daily basis. It is mostly for administrators, but quite a bit of this information would benefit developers if they understood it.

The top ten skills are:

  1. Perform a Backup
  2. Restore a Database
  3. Setup Security
  4. Join Tables Together
  5. Create an Index
  6. Run Database Maintenance
  7. Schedule a Job
  8. Send an Email from SQL Server
  9. Import Data
  10. Search BOL

Length: 75 minutes (can be done in 60)

Talk specific slides are here:
I have a series of blog posts under the TopTenSkills tag that relate to these items.
