I'm moving from SQL Server to Teradata, therefore could someone recommend any good (preferably online) resources about Teradata? I'm not looking for information about basics, but rather about new features and concepts that are in Teradata.

In addition to the online forums mentioned above I would like to mention the ATR (=A-Terrific-Resource") forum which has now been replaced by a section inside of Teradata Connections.

The disadvantage is that it is only available to the TD customers and employees (+some qualified contractors)
