Featured Presentation

JSON by Greg McMurray

Speaker: Greg McMurray, Business Solutions Developer WECC

Summary: Abstract: JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) is the hot new lingua franca of our connected world. Douglas Crockford "discovered" it in 2001 and it has continued to gain popularity in our web-driven world. SQL Server 2016 has added new functionality to work with this increasingly important data format. We will take a beginners look at what JSON is, how to validate it, the querying support that has been added to T-SQL and how you can export the results of your queries as JSON. You can also store JSON in SQL Server columns and query against it - even using an index! Come learn how easy it can be to work with JSON data inside your database.
