Training SQLScript Basics

Course description

The course consists of approximately 7 hours of time. On the 2nd day of training, it is therefore a little shorter. 

Learn the basics of SQLScript, the SQL dialect for the SAP HANA database, and its programming tools.

This one-day course focuses on the declarative aspects of the SQLScript query language. You will learn how to create and test high-performance queries on the SAP HANA database. To do this, you’ll learn about the tools you need, such as the Web-Based Development Workbench, the SQL console, and the SQLScript debugger.

As training material, my book is SQLScript for SAPHANA.  That’s why every participant receives a personal copy at his first training.
