  • Blog Post: Heading to Tech Ed EMEA Barcelona

    I always love going to Barcelona. Sure, it's a great city, and loved riding motorcycles into the mountains last year with my wife; but it's just a great event to attend and present.

  • Blog Post: SQL Server Compact Books - now in Spanish

    For our Spanish customers, Jose M. Torres just published a book covering SQL Server Compact for our Spanish customers .

It's a single file, it's only "open" when being used and can use the standard set of security mechanisms that any other document can.

  • Blog Post: First look at the Visual Studio Orcas Sync Designer

    Here's part 1 of the new Sync Designer. In this screen cast I walk through how to cache lookup tables locally. In this screencast I use the 2 tier sync, starting simple.

  • Blog Post: Additional Q&A on the Visual Studio Orcas Sync Designer

    Q: Why does the Orcas Feb CTP Typed DataSet designer not work on Vista? A: Visual Studio Orcas is not yet fully compatible with Vista. In the Feb CTP there are several issues with something we call "red bits". These are changes to the runtime that shipped in .NET 3.0 which shipped with Vista. For...
  • Blog Post: Q&A on OCS & Sync Services for ADO.NET

    Not surprisingly we've been get a lot of great questions about specific features and scenarios for our new Sync Services for ADO.NET (OCS).
