I'm honored to be invited to speak at SQLServerDays, Nov 19-20, in Schelle Belgium, just outside of Antwerp. I've been to Belgium before, but this is my first time in Antwerp and I'm really looking forward to it.

I'll be doing a day-long precon on Nov 19 on New Features in SQL Server 2012. And following up on Tuesday with talks on two of my favorite topics: Spatial Data and SQL Performance, both about the improvements on SQL Server 2012.

Looking forward to catching up with old friends (the Belgian folks were always kind and invited me to their "country party" at TechEds over the years) and meeting up with some new friends. And they'll be lots of great speakers at this conference. If you're around Monday and/or Tuesday, stop by and say hi.
