|SQL Server vNext runs on Linux!
At Microsoft, it is an exciting time to see the huge push for interoperability, but it can also be daunting to keep up with the changes. In this session, Jason will cover one of the upcoming changes, which is SQL Server running on Linux. Because Linux knowledge is not a given for SQL Server users, he’ll give a brief introduction to the Linux operating system. It is easy to spin up a Linux VM using Azure. During the talk, Jason will show how to install and connect to SQL Server running on an Azure VM. He’ll then cover the SQL Server features and services that work on Linux. Demos will include database migration, server configuration, and tools, including the new SQL Server extension for Visual Studio Code.
