You may have already run into him but I’d highly recommend following Brian Swan’s work. He’s got a deep background working with SQL Server and is focusing a lot of his energy making sure the PHP community is successful using Microsoft technology, especially SQL Server and SQL Azure.
He’s already written some good technical articles:
- Top 10 PHP-Microsoft Resources
- Getting Started with PHP on Windows
- Getting Started with the SQL Server Driver for PHP
- SQL Server Driver for PHP: Understanding Windows Authentication
