I’ve been honing my slides and polishing up my demos for TechEd 2006 Hong Kong at the end of September. I’ll be doing some breakouts there on SQL Server 2005 and ADO.NET vNext, but there will also be a “Day of SQL Server 2005 for Developers”, as a preconference presentation. There’s so much that’s new in SQL Server 2005 that it’s impossible to fit it all in a single day, but I think that even if you were at last year’s TechEd, you’ll be pleasently surprised at some at the newer in-depth material from a slightly different perspective. It will be a FULL day.


By the looks of the speaker list, I’ll be in good company in the SQL Server space, with experts such as Paul Randal (check out his latest amazing entries on the SQL Server Storage Engine blog) and Thierry D’Hers. And my old cohort Jon Flanders will be there too, captivating attendees with Windows Workflow Foundation and Biztalk, no doubt.


It will be good to see old friends again, too. Stop by and say hi. See you in Hong Kong!
