SQLskills holiday gift to you: all 2012 Insider videos

As we all wind down for the 2013 holiday season, we want to give the SQL Server community a holiday gift to say ‘thank you’ for all your support during 2013, and what better gift than more free content?!

As many of you know, I publish a bi-weekly newsletter to more than 10,000 subscribers that contains an editorial on a SQL Server topic, a demo video, and a book review of my most recently completed book. We’ve decided to make all the 2012 demo videos available  so everyone can watch them – 25 videos in all, WMV format only. I did the same thing last year with the 2011 videos.

Here are the details:
