SQL Server 2014 Tutorial

Table of Contents

This tutorial uses SQL Server 2014 and covers the following:

This tutorial is for anyone who wants to learn how to use SQL Server 2014. It assumes a basic understanding of databases and how they work, but it does not assume any prior experience with SQL Server 2014 or previous editions.

If you don't know how databases work, start with the basic database tutorial first.

The examples in this tutorial are all done using the free version of SQL Server - SQL Server 2014 Express with Tools. You can download SQL Server 2014 Express with Tools from the Microsoft website (we'll get to that in a minute).

If you don't currently have SQL Server yet, that's OK. The tutorial is straight forward and contains plenty of screenshots.
