Every weekday during the month of October, one of the modules from my Fundamentals classes will be absolutely free to watch. But you gotta watch it that day – you snooze, you lose.
For this week’s Fundamentals of Columnstore class, you don’t have hands-on labs, and you’re not meant to follow along with the demos. Columnstore is about bigger data, so I use the 2018-06 ~180GB copy of Stack Overflow (info page.) You definitely don’t need to grab that, but I’m mentioning it here in case you want to follow along with the demos.
- Oct 17 – How Columnstore Data is Stored
- Oct 18 – How Columnstore Data is Deleted, Updated, and Inserted
- Oct 19 – How Columnstore Data is Selected
- Oct 20 – How Columnstore Data is Rebuilt
- Oct 21 – Clustered Recap and Nonclustered Columnstore Indexes
Make sure to keep up – next week, we’ve got Fundamentals of TempDB to finish up the month.
Eagle-eyed readers will note that this isn’t all of the modules from each class, nor is it all of my Fundamentals classes. That’s because this whole thing is a diabolical mind trick, dear reader. I aim to get you hooked on the quality of my online training, and then come November 1st, when my annual Black Friday sale starts, you’ll be ready to get out your wallet – or your boss’s wallet – to get a Recorded Class Season Pass: Fundamentals, or Mastering, or the Level 2 Bundle when they go on sale.
