SQL Server Performance

Shipping a Product

    In a lot of projects there is a formal handover process or acceptance procedure when a product is developed and then released into production. This process normally involves various teams verifying that the product is complete and potentially signing a formal handover document. The release procedure is often a combination of formability and relief that the work is finally over. A lot of ship events that I have been to are almost a party with a few drinks and a sigh of relief that the product has shipped (hopefully on time and on budget).
    The following video of SQL Server 2008 being approved for shipping shows that there is very little difference between the release process for SQL Server and the release process adopted by many organisations. I am sure that hiding behind that whiteboard was an esky full of beer just waiting for the camera to stop rolling. I hope you have a great weekend especially if you are shipping a release.
