is a Technical Fellow at Microsoft and long time database architect. Today, Dave works on the hardest problems
facing SQL's foray into the new world of cloud computing. His latest project in this space takes the form of SQL Azure. What is SQL Azure? What's the different with the cloud and what we already experience with SQL server running in a clustered environment
and reachable via the Internet? How does this focus on cloud computing and impact the evolution of database design? What's going here? What's next? Erik Meijer, de facto E2E host and language designer, interviews Dave to ge answers to some of these questions.
Erik works for Dave, by the way, and as you can see that doesn't stop Erik from asking more than softball questions.
Dave will be presenting at PDC09
in the Technical Leaders track. His talk will focus on ambient data and what this means for the evolution of ways to understand and shape the data
this all around us using software. You should attend his session and come with questions if you are going to be at PDC. If you're not going to be there, then make sure to ask Dave questions when he appears on
