Friday Reading 2017-08-04

It’s a bank holiday weekend here in Ireland so I’m looking forward to having the extra day off. Bought a new computer this week so am going to spend a bit of time setting that up (one of my favourite things to do).

One thing to mention is that next week (on the 9th @ 17:00 GMT) I’ll be presenting my SQL Server & Containers session for the Pass Virtualisation Virtual Chapter. Really looking forward to it, you can find out more details here.

Anyway, this week I’ve been reading…

MS Official SQL Server Blog announcing SQL Server 2017 RC2.

Upgrading SQL Server–Day 1
First part of Glenn Berry’s blog series on upgrading and migrating to SQL Server 2016/2017.
