Mike DeFehr on SQL 2014

Join us on May 7th @5:30pm for Mike DeFehr on SQL 2014!

Topic: SQL 2014 Launch
SQL 2014 is available on April 1. What's new? Hekaton for one - AKA In-Memory OLTP. I'll spend a lot of time talking about Hekaton as it is one of the most key new features in 2014, but we'll also take a look at the updatable columnstore, cloud integration, backup encryption, delayed durability and partition indexing. SQL 2014 is a huge step forward in taking the SQL platform to the Enterprise level. Come see it first-hand in this fun and demo-intensive session.
