New York City – SQL Saturday #588

I am traveling to the Big Apple to present at SQL Saturday #588 in New York City. It will be a good time to meet old friends, make new ones and learn something new.

I hope you have time to attend this awesome free event on May 20, 2017 at Microsoft Office, 11 Times Square, New York City.


Here are the details behind the presentation that I gave that day.


Public Preview of SQL on Linux


There was a lot of excitement at the Connect() developer conference in November 2016. Two major announcements were made at the conference.

First, visual studio code now runs on Windows, Linux and Mac. Second, SQL Server v.Next is coming to Linux. This means a developer can
