T-SQL Tuesday is now entering its fourth year! Sebastian Meine, who's hosting this month's T-SQL Tuesday, chose joins as this month's subject, to correspond with his "A join a day" blog series.
SQL Server 2012 brings with it so many new features and enhancements that it is futile to try and sum it up. Many articles and blog posts have been and will be written on the shiny new HA/DR, T-SQL, Columnstore and batch processing and numerous others. In this short post, I want to draw your attention to some less ‘shiny’ work that will affect your first interaction with SQL Server 2012 – the installation process.
