Our next meeting is Thursday, April 26th. This month, we will be talking about two Microsoft topics: documentation and
cross-platform SQL Server.
First, Ed Macuaely of Microsoft will give a brief session about Microsoft's initiative on open-sourcing documentation and
how everyone can contribute to their online documentation.
Second, the meeting will shift to cross-platform Microsoft SQL Server. Ed will demonstrate installing SQL Server on a
Linux machine and Microsoft's Alan Yu will then give a remote presentation on SQL Operations Studio, Microsoft's new cross-platform
management tool for SQL Server.
As usual, the meeting will begin at 6:00 PM.
Learn how to contribute to official Microsoft documentation. You’ll learn a number of ways you can contribute to content,
from making suggestions to fixing minor typos, and making major revisions. Get started with content contributions, share
your knowledge, and see your name on docs.microsoft.com.
Ed Macauley is a Sr. Content Developer at Microsoft, primarily working on SQL Server. Before joining Microsoft he worked
as a DBA and software engineer, primarily in the online gaming space. He’s has been working with SQL Server since version
6.5 and is a fan of C# for development. Ed lives in Las Vegas and can be found on GitHub (@edmacauley) and occasionally
