But if you're using SQL Server 2012, Oracle Database, or MySQL (see above) as your DBMS, our books can boost your SQL skills in a way that makes you a more effective, efficient, and confident developer...whether you're issuing queries, using powerful database features like stored procedures, triggers, or functions, or designing and creating database tables. Valuable guides for any developer.

That's where our jQuery book comes in. Fast-paced, professional, and packed with real-world examples, it delivers the jQuery expertise you need...and the JavaScript knowledge you need to tweak jQuery code for specific applications. That's true whether you use it for step-by-step training or for on-the-job reference.
