I'm getting my plane tickets and plans together for DevWeek 2011 in London, coming up in March. I'll be doing a preconference workshop on "Writing SQL Server database applications and stored procedures for best performance".

In addition, I'll be presenting on:
   Performance Enhancements in SQL Server 2008
   LINQ vs Stored Procedures
   Spatial Indexing and spatial index troubleshooting
   Designing Hierarchies in SQL Server
   A showcase application for SQL Server 2008 features

It's been a while since I've been to London and it will be nice to catch up with Kevin Jones from my DM days, as well as Jeff Prosise, Itzik Ben-Gan, Dominick Baier, Ingo Rammer, Christian Weyer, and other folks that are presenting. If you've even attended classes I did in the London area in the first half of the last decade (and even if you haven't)…hope to see you there.
