As you are facing the long side of the building – the main entrance is to your left. To the right, around the corner at the end of the building is a door which leads to the hallway where the new room is, and the first door on your right is “it”.
SQL Server 2017 New Features - Part 1 With Joshua Jin

SQL Server v.Next (2017) has many exciting new features. In this 90-min session, you will see live demos and hear interactive discussions. Your takeaway is to see where the future SQL Server release is heading to and to get your questions answered. We will keep the questions and discussions at the introduction level so that most members can find their ways to pursue further interests as necessary.

- SQL Server v.Next on Ubuntu hosted in a Docker container. You will see how to connect and access a database in Docker using Microsoft Visual Studio Code tool as well as SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS). Docker is super easy to setup and use.

- Adaptive Query Processing. This is a long waited feature for all SQL DBAs. This feature is so much better and advanced than the Query Store feature in SQL 2016. Joshua will explain the use-cases and use the latest SSMS (v17.1) to demonstrate the feature, don’t miss the demo.

- SQL Server Graph Engine. Microsoft is in the right direction to provide a Graph engine on SQL Server for many suitable business use-cases. You will see a simple demo of the feature that has been implemented so far. Joshua will compare this feature with a popular graph database Neo4j. With a quick demo of Neo4j, you will see what to expect from the Microsoft’s future Graph database engine.
