It's time for T-SQL Tuesday #78 - May 2016 edition!

Plenty of heads-up for this installment of #tsql2sday because this time, I'm challenging you to learn something new and blog about it! 

There are so many new things to play around with, some brand-spanking newly released, and others that have been around for a bit, but you've probably still not taken any time to try it out. 

Here's a short list of ideas to get you started:

  • PowerBI
  • Azure (remember you can get $150 monthly credit just for trying it out!)
    • Virtual Machines
    • SQL Database
    • Stretch tables
  • SQL Server on Linux
  • SQL 2016
    • Always Encrypted
    • Query Store
    • Row Level Security

The Rules (completely stolen from Bob Pusateri!)

There’s only a few rules for T-SQL Tuesday:
  • Your post must be published between 00:00 GMT Tuesday May 10 2016 and 00:00 GMT Wednesday May 11 2016.
  • Your post must contain the T-SQL Tuesday logo (see above) at the top and the image must link back to this blog post.
  • Trackbacks should work, but if they don’t, please put a link to your post in the comments section so I (and everyone else) can see your contribution!
There’s also a few optional things you can do that might help:
  • Include “T-SQL Tuesday #78” in your blog post’s title.
  • Tweet about your post using the #tsql2sday hashtag
  • Contact Adam Machanic and tell him you’d like to host a T-SQL Tuesday from your blog.
