Come and learn about database administration in the new world of SQL Data Services (SDS). Starting from the creation of an SDS account, learn about tools and techniques for provisioning accounts, servers, and databases. See how billing is managed. Learn how to collaborate with your peers to build an Azure project that uses SDS. We demonstrate the mechanisms for database management such as managing logins and permissions. See how SDS automates the tedious and complex administrative tasks (e.g., machine failures) and allows you to spend more time on the important design functions of a DBA.
