Course Overview
[Autogenerated] Hi, everyone. My name is Andrew Max Wigan on Welcome to my course T SQL Functions Playbook. I am a data specialist and I use the t SQL language to structure and analyze data. T SQL offers an array of powerful functions that enable the initiated to extract meaning from data stored inside SQL server databases. I introduce you to aggregation and ranking functions that will enable you to elevate the data to something concise and insightful. Every function you learn will provide you with the solution or common analytical problem. Everything you learn along the way will empower you to take control of your data. Some of the key topics that I explore with t SQL are creating measures with aggregation functions, implementing logical expressions that evaluate transformed columns or every row returned by a query embedding one query inside another within line views and correlated sub queries, putting out parts of dates and text fields rounding and formatting numbers, transforming content to add meaning. By the end of the course, you will know how to use the analytical functions provided by the T SQL language. Before beginning the course, you should have a working knowledge of the T SQL language, the rudimentary, the standing of Data Analytics. I hope that you will join me on this journey to learn how to use analytical functions with T SQL functions Playbook course Pluralsight.
