Disclaimer: as with any nascent trend and technology, there are related risks. When it comes to cryptocurrencies, the field is still in its infancy. There is limited available resources to the general public. Instead, it’s still a niche & nerdy field. I wanted to share my experience, but remember that anything you would do is at your own (electricity) costs 😉.

A free and powerful tool to leverage data, skill-up, and stand out during interviews

What to Expect?

In this series of articles, I will do a walkthrough of the Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS). Today we’ll start with a setup of the environment. In the next articles, we’ll create our own databases and tables. Create, read, update, delete records. We’ll write, save and alter our own stored procedures. We’ll also schedule jobs, create SSIS packages… If you’re not familiar with some of those terms, you’ll soon get more than a grasp, and create and manage them yourself.

SSMS is a powerful tool, and an interesting skill to have on your belt if you’re looking to skill-up…
