Listen to the most popular internet audio talk show for .NET developers! Here's the abstract:Carl and Richard talk to Kevin Kline about the latest features in SQL Server 2012. The conversation ...
I was chatting with my buddy, Buck Woody (Twitter | Blog), about a week ago and we were discussing that it's pretty hard to put together the entire history of SQL Server.

faced the challenges of version control for an application, but what if
you have to implement version control for data?
