SQL News 8 June 2006

This is the first of hopefully a series of summaries of whats happening in the SQL world.

I've can't start this without mentioning Data Dude. The new SKU of VS for Database Developers. The CTP has been signed off and will be available at Tech Ed. It should be available for download on 11th June.

I downloaded and listenened to the .Net rocks show with  Kimberley Tripp its very funny. She aludes to many of the recent announcements like Data Dude, Performance Server also mentioned is testing so lets see whats coming out for that.

Any of you still using SQL Server 6.0 well Kimberley wants to know when you're going to SQL 2005

Another great post from the craig on how a query really works (Building blocks of Query Execution), if you classify your self as a SQL geek this is a must read post.

New forum for those of you, and lets hope thats everyone, who is interest in disaster recovery.

If you haven't heard support for SQL 2000 is ending as of June 2006, or not if you've already read the other posts.

Events
