Extend your programming skills with a comprehensive study of the key features of SQL Server 2008. Delve into the new core capabilities, get practical guidance from expert developers, and put their code samples to work.

  • Query complex data with powerful Transact-SQL enhancements
  • Use new, non-relational features: hierarchical tables, native file streaming, and geospatial capabilities
  • Exploit XML inside the database to design XML-aware applications
  • Consume and deliver your data using Microsoft LINQ, Entity Framework, and data binding
  • Implement database-level encryption and server auditing
  • Build and maintain data warehouses
