Microsoft has officially launched its SQL SERVER 2014 this April at an event held in San Francisco, CA. Microsoft adds some new features and updates some of its existing features in every other SQL Server version. Sooner or later all our systems will be updated with this version.
So what does it means to a developer?
Is it a good sign or bad sign to a developer?
Did Microsoft made any ground breaking changes to its product?
Should I have to reinvigorate my T-SQL skills to work with 2014?
A Developer mind is bombarded with so many questions like above when we hear about a version upgrade. Don’t worry folks, I have got your back. I was excited enough like every other developer to get the 2014 version within first few weeks of its launch and done my review of it. I did learn a lot and my goal is to share some of its valuable insights a SQL Server developer must know to work with 2014. I will be posting my top 5 favorite features of SQL Server 2014 as a series over next few days. Please keep tuned.
