Curated content about SQL Server, Azure SQL and more used internally in Microsoft's instructor-led classes has been made freely available to the rest of us.
Visit the sqlworkshops portal and you'll find learning content on:
There are two other courses, Data Literacy, where you can:
learn how to apply a rigorous analysis process and work with various data tools to make good decisions from authoritative data
and a very interesting Coursera one on the process of learning itself, “Learning how to Learn: Powerful mental tools to help you master tough subjects”.
SQL Server Data Platform
Workshop: SQL Server Ground to Cloud
Workshop: Azure SQL
Lab: Python for Data Professionals
Machine Learning and AI
Workshop: Machine Learning with SQL Server
One very useful section that most people miss is the "Presentation Materials" which contains a wealth of PowerPoint Decks, sample code and tools used by Microsoft to teach these workshops. Saying that,at Microsoft these workshops are instructor-led but they are designed to be consumed in self-guiding fashion too.
Not just that, but released under a permissive license they can be used in your own teaching, in your own classes. Even the template that is used in laying out these workshops and labs has been made available so that anyone can use it to get started.
Behind the umbrella link https://aka.ms/sqlworkshops there's a Github repository and you are free to clone it in order to take the workshops locally, amend them,and use them on your own. The instructors even encourage the opening Github issues if you find something that needs correction or is out of the ordinary.
Of course, you'll also need to set up a development environment depending on the subject at hand, for example for doing Python, or a Microsoft Azure account for doing the Azure workshops.The instructors recommend free tools or free tier services so that anyone can follow along.
So visit https://aka.ms/sqlworkshops and choose what you'll learn today!
