For any of you that might have been negatively impacted by the recent recession and are looking to get back into development, Arnie Rowland (a fellow SQL Server MVP) has created Project Phoenix. Just as a Phoenix has to periodically regenerate itself, you might need to hone your skills and get some tools to help you along. To do this, they're offering an amazing package of software and training – with your help in helping a non-profit in return. You really need to check this out and pass it on. You can get all of the details here: http://sqlblog.com/blogs/arnie_rowland/archive/2010/07/30/like-a-phoenix-rising-from-the-ashes.aspx.
Pass it on!
