The Handbook for Reluctant Database Administrators is designed to provide a good grasp of what is required for a programmer to design, build, secure, and maintain a database and is written from the point of view of someone who has crossed over from programming to database administration. It covers the core topics of database design, backups and recovery, indexing, stored procedures, user defined functions, SQL Server error handling as compared to VB error handling, triggers, database security, XML in SQL Server, Data Transformation Services, a special introduction to Performance Tuning, and an overview of how Microsoft’s .NET strategy will affect SQL Server.

In addition to the programmer view, Database Administrator veteran Francis Stanisci adds commentary throughout the book, offering additional insight from his years as a database administrator.
