Latest MVA Offerings for SQL Server and for Windows 10 (Yes it’s time to start looking at this)

The team at Microsoft Virtual Academy (MVA) have pushed out some new content that’s relevant to database people.

First, if you’re wondering about using Azure for SQL Server, the Jumpstart for SQL Server in Azure VMs is worth a look. Longer term, I suspect we’ll mostly end up using SQL Server as a platform service (Azure SQL DB) but in the short-term, implementing it in a VM will be more common as it’s probably both easier when migrating existing applications and a little more familiar to most.

Next, if you have to deal with other databases (shock horror, yes there are others including open source ones), there is a course on Open Source Databases on Azure.

Finally, you would have to have been living under a rock not to notice that Windows 10 is coming. But now, it’s time to start to get your head around what’s different. There’s a course that covers off the Fundamentals of the Technical Preview of Windows 10.
