Hi everyone! so i have found so much interest in sql. currently learning about SQL online(lynda.com).
ok my question is, what should i do specifically to have a career in SQL. what major? certification/exam?


There are multiple areas where you can map your career in SQL Server.

SQL Developer(TSQL Programmer)


To add to what ahmeds08 said, depending on your learning style, you might want to get a few books on the specific sub-speciality, sign up for an online video training site such as pluralsight, or sign up for some in-person training classes.

SQL Server has a free edition (Express) and a relatively low-priced developer edition that you can install and experiment with.

Also, try to get some background in basic data base theory - normalization, set-based programming etc.

Perusing the forums, online articles, MSDN etc. are other great resources.


thank u ahmeds08! so im guessing ur one of these careers?


I didn't get you.


i mean do u work now using SQL? are u in the SQL career field?


Yes,I am working as a DBA/BI developer.


Good for u! please can u be of help to guide or mentor me? like how u got to where u are. im also interested in becoming a DBA/BI developer. Thank You!
