Just finished watching the Data Driven event that was broadcasted live from New York earlier today. As expected there was a lot of information about SQL Server 2016 and quite a few visitors telling how their companies used Microsoft SQL Server in their daily business. And these were some big businesses, having impressive amounts of data and transactions to handle. With SQL Server 2016 Microsoft is giving us a feature packed and complete data platform to work with.
It’s a last day of my combined summer vacation and paternal leave and for the last week my thoughts have, now and then, drifted momentarily to work related things like trying to remember my laptop password. This is, at least for me, a common occurrence. With the end of the vacation approaching my mind starts to get back to the “work mode”. And a blog post seems like a good way to end my vacation.
When it comes to finding information or learning more about the SQL Server and it’s features, the professional community around the product is one of the best ones I’ve ever seen. I personally have a score of SQL Server blogs in my bookmarks, I visit SQL Server forums and follow a bunch of world-class experts in Twitter. Basically, there’s a wealth of information out there and unlike many other things in this world, it’s completely free.
