On the Zend Developer Zone Cal Evans has a new post looking at an event Microsoft is holding this week, the SQL Server Jump In! Camp, and who's there and what's going on:
This is a different kind of Camp, the focus is on writing code, not necessarily learning new techniques. That is not to say that there isn't learning, showcasing and demoing going on, but it is obviously not the focus of the week.
Projects that are represented at the camp include PEAR, Frapi, CakePHP, Zend Framework, VoceComm and Agavi. One of the main focuses of the week-long event is to get SQL server support introduced into each of the projects and to have it ready to ship by the end of the week. Some projects have already released their SQL server support.
