E-Book "Introduction to Microsoft SQL Server 2008" - Gratis!

El último boletín de Microsoft Press ha publicado esta oferta gratuita para descarga, el autor principal es Peter DeBetta, MVP en SQL. El libro revisa las principales nuevas características de esta nueva versión de SQL sin llegar a mucho detalle pero lo suficiente para entender qué hay y cómo funciona.

 

Un extracto en inglés comentando el libro: DeBetta and his coauthors—Greg Low and Mark Whitehorn, who are also database experts, consultants, developers, and writers—divide their discussion of SQL Server 2008 into seven topics: Security and Administration, Performance, Type System Enhancements, Programmability, Storage, Enhancements for High Availability, and Business Intelligence Enhancements. In each of these chapters, the authors describe new or improved features. They could not address every additional capability of or improvement in SQL Server 2008, however, because their view (and thus their readers' view) into the product is an early one. Given the goals of the book—to introduce and explore the product in a preliminary way, both conceptually and practically (with sample code)—readers will find plenty to interest them” (Microsoft Press Newsletter, 09/17/08)
