Welcome to Beginning SQL Server 2012 Programming!
I'm glad the book has finally hit the shelves, and I hope you're already getting started with SQL Server 2012. This forum is just one of the resources available to you, and I'll be keeping an eye on it regularly. Whether you're new to database programming entirely or just learning SQL Server for the first time, post your questions!
Thanks, and I hope you find this book fun and informative in proportion to the effort I put into making it so.
