Understanding How Indexes work through Everyday Analogies

This is a beginning level course for those who have always found indexes confusing and somewhat elusive. Terms that will be covered and clarified:

  • Clustered
  • Non-Clustered
  • Uniqueness
  • Column Order
  • Selectivity
  • Sort Order

That's it!

But -- when you leave this course, you will CLEARLY understand each in a very physically relatable way. Analogy is heavily used in getting concepts across, referencing everyday items as examples and scenarios that attendees can relate to and visualize. If you already understand these concepts clearly, you may still want to attend just to see how the subject matter can be conveyed in a way that just "clicks" in the mind of the learner.
