I would like to share a link to my Azure SQL Database Stairway series hosted over at SQLServerCentral.
As stated on the website a stairway guide is a series focused on a single topic and is arranged into no more than a dozen easily-navigable tutorials that we call ‘steps’. Each step is the length of a typical magazine tutorial, and emphasizes practical, hands-on learning, with just enough background theory to help you understand the topic.
You will learn the following:
- An introduction – Getting started with Azure SQL Database.
- Creating a “logical” SQL Server.
- Creating an Azure SQL Database.
- Connecting to the database.
- Basic administration tasks.
This was written with the intention that you have ZERO experience with Azure, I hope you will find it useful.
