While you can read all about what’s new with SQL Server 2019 in our documentation, why not also learn at your pace and by example with videos? And who better to learn about SQL Server 2019 than the engineering team that built the product. We’re excited to announce our new SQL Server 2019 video learning series all taught by members of the SQL Server Engineering Team.

Start your journey by listening to Travis Wright tell you the story of the SQL Server 2019 product in this video:

Introducing SQL Server 2019 Data Exposed video.

This learning series covers the SQL Server 2019 product end-to-end using a series of short videos with demonstrations. Each video is taught by a member of the engineering team that focused on a particular aspect of the product.
