I've known Bob Ward for almost as long as I've been involved with SQL Server. (I first started in 1992). Bob is one of the constants in the SQL Server team, is deeply technical, and his continuing passion for the product is apparent.
I've been wanting to get Bob onto a podcast for a long time and we finally managed to do so today.
Bob is currently a principal architect with the SQL Server engineering team, focused on architecture, customer success, and technical evangelism of SQL Server.
In this show, we discussed SQL Server 2017, the ongoing evolution of the product, Linux and Graph support, the new servicing model, remote working and some baseball.
I hope you'll find it fun and informative like I did.
You'll find it (along with other SQL Down Under podcasts) here:
