Post Conference(s)

End of the conference season 2008. At least for me, my friends in Belgium are looking forward to their SQL Server Day, coming up soon.

I was able to catch up with a lot of friends at TechEd EMEA ITForum, TechEd EMEA for Developers, and SQLPASS, including some folks I hadn't seen in years. Just wanted to reiterate how good it was to see you, how much fun it was to hang out. I heard about of a lot of exciting new upcoming technologies and was able to discuss them with the industry's experts one-on-one.

My contribution was some hopefully useful information that made it easier to understand the zen of the new SQL Server 2008 features, the motivation for migration, and a lot of cool tools for your planning, deploying, and troubleshooting toolbox. All the sample code that I can give away is posted on the SQLskills website. The folks at the SQLPASS preconference even received DVDs. I hope you had as good a time as I did.

  1. Thanks for the great preconference session, Bob! But I just tried to download the code samples from your conference page, and the link was broken. Just wanted to let you know.

  2. Hi Bob

    I attended your pre-conference seminar at PASS and found it very good. I also share your enthusiasm for the new spatial data-types. You are absolutely correct – if you store some kind of address in your db (who doesn’t ?) – these new capabilities will open up new possibilities.

    I was also surprised by the number of people attending the more developer-oriented sessions at PASS. A much welcomed addition to the more hard-core DBA sessions.
