You may think that there is much in SQL Server that appears to work as if by magic? And you would be right! But despite this magic, everything is actually quite easy to understand. This 500-level report contains information about the internal data storage format in SQL Server (MDF files), as well as about how you can work with the data using only a hex editor. You will learn about how SQL Server stores internal metadata for objects and about how you can find and read the data on the disk.
With modern development, more than ever both applications and environments require frequent changes. But, obtaining and modifying dev and test environments often involves significant effort and long delays. In this session we will discuss how to use Azure DevTest Lab to create and manage environments. Learn how to create a lab, share reusable templates and artifacts to quickly compose environments, set quotas and policies to optimize costs, and integrate with your existing toolchains for continuous delivery.
