This full-day workshop will get you up to speed on powerful new features in SQL Server 2022. Lenni will pull no punches as he rips through the most important SQL Server features for developers in this intensive demo-packed tour.

We'll kick things off with the broad multi-platform support across Windows, Linux, and Docker. Learn how SQL Server's ability to run inside Linux containers on both Windows and Mac will revolutionize the way you work with the database engine. Then you'll explore the Intelligent Query Processing (IQP) features, which deliver groundbreaking performance improvements to the query engine. We'll then move on to the latest development platform improvements, including T-SQL enhancements added in SQL Server 2022, machine learning services with R and Python, integrated JSON support, and temporal tables.

Next we'll explore security features, starting with ledger tables. New in SQL Server 2022, ledger utilizes blockchain technology that hashes every transaction, and guarantees tamper evidence in your database. Next, we'll examine dynamic data masking and row-level security. We'll then dig into Always Encrypted and demonstrate support for secure enclaves to enable rich querying over encrypted data. We'll wrap up with the latest PolyBase enhancements to query external data in Azure Blob Storage, Mongo DB, Oracle, and other remote data sources.

You'll learn a ton of new SQL Server features in this information-packed day!
