I’m BACK!

16 month without a post, must be some kind of record…

I have been busy. I got married and had a child, so I’m sure that’s all the excuse for not posting that I need 🙂

I’m speaking tomorrow at Code Camp 2009 , on something new to me but very interesting, cloud computing. I’m talking on the Windows Azure SDK, a toolkit to enable .NET developers to write cloud based applications. It’s like writing ASP.NET, but without concern for the web server, since it could be hosted on any server in the cloud, and without SQL Server database access or file access but using Windows Azure Storage Services instead.

Stay tuned..

Dave’s got a weblog…

Hello All,
Ok, I finally created a blog. I’ll try to keep the narcissism to a minimum, and focus on useful stuff.

I’ve set up this site as a resource to folks that are investigating SQL Server 2008, due out in February of 2008. I’m giving a short talk today on the vision for the product, the most useful features that are planned, and doing some demonstrations on the functions that are supported as of CTP 4, release in July. I’ll put my code samples here, as well as links to resources I’ve found useful.

Check the links below and to the side, and feel free to contact me if you need help finding something.

UPDATE: spoke at the user group meeting tonight, and got good feedback. Here’s a zip containing 4 demos I did tonight.  Check the links section on the right for links to greatSQL 2008 resources, more to follow.
