Official News from Microsoft’s Information Platform
Allow me to introduce myself: I’m Roger Doherty, Sr. Technical Evangelist for SQL Server. I joined Microsoft in 1991 from Sybase and I’ve evangelized every SQL Server release since the Microsoft / Ashton-Tate / Sybase SQL Server version 1.0 from 1989. I’m excited about SQL Server 2008 R2 and its improvements so the team and I worked like crazy to bring you the first installment of some great developer training content.
My cohorts and I (you’ll meet them later) have built a SQL Server 2008 R2 Update for Developers Training Kit. This kit is filled with videos, presentations, demos and hands-on labs. The content is great for developers, training partners, and consultants who need to understand and talk about SQL Server 2008 R2.
We gathered the information contained in the training kit from the folks who built SQL Server 2008 R2. We will continue to launch more content in the following weeks, so keep an eye on my blog for more updates. Soon I will be announcing a companion training course on Channel 9.
I hope you are one of the first people to download the training kit and use it to start building a SQL Server 2008 R2 solution. This training kit is brought to you courtesy of Microsoft Developer and Platform Evangelism. Happy learning!
