I had the good fortune to be able to spend an hour or so (may have been a bit longer 😉 chatting with Richard and Carl last week on .NET Rocks! about SQL Server 2005 and the state of the world in general. This episode should be available on Tuesday, Apr 18 at the usual places, Franklin’s.NET and MSDN. Although the topic was originally to be SQLCLR, things quickly shifted into a discussion of snapshot isolation (aka versioning), Service Broker, XML support, statement-level recompilation and other topics database folks enjoy talking about. Hope you’all enjoy it.
Extended events has firmly established itself as the premier diagnostic feature in SQL Server and SQL Server 2016 brings along more events to correspond to
