At the last Connections conference in April, the conference organizers tapped a bunch of speakers for interviews, articles, and other content to put into a free “newsletter” called MyDevConnections, and now it’s finally available. It covers all the Connections conferences, so isn’t just limited to SQL Server. As far as SQL is concerned, Kimberly and I wrote an article about our favorite SQL Server 2008 features (data compression and filtered indexes, respectively), and Ross Mistry wrote an article on hardening a SQL Server 2005 installation. There’s also an extract from a Women in Technology interview that Kimberly took part in. Overall there’s 84 pages of content in the PDF, with some adverts for the Connections shows (obviously).
