Sybase Developer Assessment


Sybase Developer Assessment

Skills Assessment

Sybase is a popular relational database management system used by a wide variety of businesses. Typically, a Sybase developer is less concerned with the creation and maintenance of the database (e.g. building the database or backups), as this is the domain of the Database Administrator, and more interested in the actual manipulation and retrieval of the data in the database. Often times this will be via a third party tool or programming language, but many developers will work exclusively with the database. The focus of this exam is on the ability of the developer to manipulate data stored within the database, their familiarity with the Sybase environment and their knowledge of the tools that are provided with Sybase. This test is designed to test the knowledge of a Sybase Developer rather than a Sybase Administrator.

Tests for Sybase 11, Sybase 12 and Sybase DBA are also available.
