I have had a bit of a “SQL Azure” day at TechEd Europe. I sat through David Robinsons excellent intro to SQL Azure development (smooth, on time, great Q&A), caught up with David afterwards to exchange stories on SQL Azure and find out what I will be missing at PDC next week and then grabbed the chance to capture a short 10minute podcast which I will publish up on Channel 9 next week.

David did his demos using a new version of SQL Server Management Studio which works with SQL Azure and announced that it would be publicly available today. And it is.

You can download SSMS in 32bit and 64bit flavours (Unfortunately I can not – as my hotel free internet is blocking it!)

These links are taken from the Microsoft® SQL Server® 2008 R2 November Community Technology Preview - Express Edition download page.

Also check out this "getting started post" of my first few minutes with SSMS.
