Ward Pond's SQL Server blog

Ruminating on issues pertinent to the design and development of sound databases and processes under Microsoft SQL Server 2008, SQL Server 2005, and SQL Server 2000 (while reserving the right to vent about anything else that's on my mind)

This Week: The SQL Server 2008 Jumpstart

This Week: The SQL Server 2008 Jumpstart

I'm spending the week in the SQL Server 2008 Jumpstart event here in Redmond.  I'm on the Developer track, which means I get to spend three days listening to the great Bob Beauchemin extoll the virtues of the new programmability constructs in SQL Server 2008.

Today's primary topics were the spatial and filestream datatypes, both of which have the promise to greatly expand the utility of SQL Server in the niches where they're required.

I'll write more when I've had more time to absorb what I'm hearing.  This promises to be a very educational week.
