For the sake of any lawyers out there reading, I want to start by saying we do not now, nor have we ever possessed SQL Server’s source code.
I wouldn’t even know what to do with it if I did — I doubt it’s written in crayon.
Heck, I’m not even competent enough to use a debugger, though I have tried. Bob Ward and Paul White just make it look so glamorous.
With that out of the way, let’s pretend we did, for some reason. Say something like:
- SQL Server went open source
- You got a job at Microsoft working on it
- The source code leaked
And now we can pretend that we’re competent code readers and writers and start flipping through the pages (these things are like books, right?).
This week, we’ll run a series of short blog posts asking you, our dear and beloved readers, what parts of the code you’d want to get a gander at in different scenarios.
Why this series? Why this week? Because
Brent is converting us into an offshore team we’re on a cruise in Alaska, and this is a nice time for you to discuss things among yourselves without moderation. Or moderators.
Hopefully WordPress sends them all out on schedule!
