Denali & CTP 3

I have Denali installed on a virtual machine on my laptop and I’m working through evaluating it. Actually, I’m working on writing two books using it as the source for the books. But it’s something of a slog, figuring out what’s new, finding out how the new stuff works, seeing if the old stuff broke. Microsoft just released a new guide for doing Denali evals. It’s worth checking out. It might help you short-circuit that discovery process just a little.

The Scary DBA

I have twenty+ years experience in IT. That time was spent in technical support, development and database administration. I work forRed Gate Software as a Product Evangelist. I write articles for publication at SQL Server Central, Simple-Talk, PASS Book Reviews and SQL Server Standard. I have published two books, ”Understanding SQL Server Execution Plans” and “SQL Server 2008 Query Performance Tuning Distilled.” I’m one of the founding officers of the Southern New England SQL Server Users Group and its current president. I also work on part-time, short-term, off-site consulting contracts. In 2009 and 2010 I was awarded as a Microsoft SQL Server MVP. In the past I’ve been called rough, intimidating and scary. To which I usually reply, “Good.” You can contact me through grant -at- scarydba dot kom (unobfuscate as necessary).
