Speaking in VGs about WSL2 for Database Development Environment

In this 2020 I've had the oportunity to talk about WSL2 and its uses for databases (Specially for SQL Server). It is always a good chance to contribute to the community, and in that search you always want to explain as many tools and technics as you possibly can. I've encounter myself in this dilema, while trying to explain step by step the use of Containers for SQL server and the visual tools around it.

In this effort trying to show the use of Visual Studio Code and Azure Data Studio as primary tools around the use of Containers for SQL Server for some time now. This year I've tried to incorporate the use of Windows Subsystem Linux (WSL2) as a real interface to use Containers instead of the traditional Docker Distros (Boot2Docker and MobyLinux). Using WSL2 interacting in both worlds Linux and windows as a host OS, creating scenarios for data use in stateful solutions to have data persistance for containerized pactices in your coding.
