Welcome to SQLMaestros Hands-On-Labs

SQLMaestros Hands-On-Labs are packaged in multiple volumes based on roles (DBA, DEV & BIA). Each lab document consists of multiple exercises and each exercise consists of multiple tasks. Apart from step-by-step instructions, the HOL document contains images, explanations, observations, notes, tips & tricks to ensure a great learning experience. With each lab, you can practice a specific concept step-by-step. SQLMaestros Hands-On-Labs enables the practical way of learning. With our HOL documents you will get hands-on with hundreds of topics in SQL Server & Microsoft Data Platform. The best way to learn is to do-it-yourself, so please stop being lazy and start practicing.

You can purchase one or more ready volumes (predefined) that you are interested in or just purchase selected labs of your choice (whatever your need is). When you make a purchase, we send you a download link and you own the labs (and scripts) for a lifetime. Yes, this is not a subscription service, you own what you buy and it remains with you for life. Isn’t that amazing? Our customers and the community is loving this option.
