- [Adam] Hi, I'm Adam Wilbert, and I'm excited to introduce you to Learn Microsoft SQL Server 2016: The Basics. SQL Server is Microsoft's professional grade database platform, and the 2016 release makes it easier than ever to start exploring how the system works. In this course, I'll show you how to install SQL Server 2016 on your own PC using the free express version, how to start and stop the server from running, and how to begin using the graphical interface called Management Studio to create new databases. We'll explore the role of data tables and table relationships in managing your data and begin adding rows of information to the tables using queries written with Transact SQL.
If you're new to SQL Server and are looking to get up to speed quickly, then this is the perfect place to start.
