Countdown to PDC2008:  Dave Campbell, a Microsoft Technical Fellow and SQL Server guru, talks about what his group has been working on and what they will be unveiling at the PDC. Dave is giving a session on data-driven applications that go from the device to the cloud, and the all important reduction in provisioning friction.  In this Countdown episode we talk about how cloud-based data services will change the way you develop and deploy applications, and how SQL Server technologies are evolving to help build data-driven solutions that span devices, desktops, servers, and the cloud. Hear how to build applications that can be deployed using SSDS in the cloud or SQL Server on-premises, and learn how to gain insights using the BI capabilities of Microsoft SQL Server.
