SQL Server Development

There is no standard job description for the DBA; it varies depending on their employer. Some DBAs tend to monitor their environments and maintain the maintenance jobs. In other companies, DBAs may perform more developer-oriented tasks, such as creating stored procedures and metadata within databases. While the focus of this book is on database administration, understanding the tools available for developers (and yourself) to use with SQL Server is also important. After reading through this chapter, you may find yourself secretly writing some code once you’ve seen what great tools Microsoft has provided for the development community.
