SQL Azure Reporting Update

Invitations have been sent out, mine has been activated and I’ll be working on the Azure Reporting features as an update to the book (http://bit.ly/msazurebook).  If you’re interested in SQL Azure Reporting, here is a recent message from the team:

You are receiving this email because you submitted your information on http://connect.microsoft.com/sqlazurectps to indicate your interest in the SQL Azure Reporting limited CTP. The Microsoft team has been very busy rolling out the SQL Azure Reporting limited CTP to customers and partners starting late last year. We have received an overwhelming response to our call for registration exceeding our most optimistic expectations.  The team has been very busy on-boarding registrants and rolling out the invitations in stages.

For those that have received an invitation, please follow the instructions provided in that email; those that are still waiting, we thank you for your support and patience as we bring you onboard.  The great news is that we are expanding the program with the goal to accommodate everyone who expressed interest – this means much richer community to test and discuss the product. We are looking forward to receiving your feedback and suggestion on features and functionality of SQL Azure Reporting.

If you have not received the invitation yet but would like to get a head start on SQL Azure Reporting here are a few pointers that will get you started:
