While you’re stuck inside wondering if you’ll ever be able to attend a user group meeting again, I’m giving you free access to training materials that your boss probably wouldn’t have been nice enough to buy you anyway.

Today, let’s talk about patching SQL Server. Don’t dilly-dally on these though: these blog posts will be online during May only, and they’ll disappear on June 1.
