The SQL Server JumpIn! Camp was an incredible experience in accomplishments and learnings for the 17 invited key PHP developers and for the SQL Server engineers that in 4 days worked side-by-side to make their apps run on SQL Server, Denali, SQL Azure, and IIS!

MediaWiki, Zend Framework, CakePHP, Aura, PEAR, FRAPI and Agavi completed SQL Server support, tested against SQL Azure, and added support for PDO. CakePHP and Agavi improved their performance on IIS.  So for you PHP developers out there now you have even more choices for developing with SQL Server!

Watch for yourself!

We want to thank all participants who were 100% invested in the camp as they all went the extra mile to investigate how their projects would integrate to Microsoft technologies; even beyond SQL Server and SQL Azure.
