In addition to the SQL Server 2008 Database Infrastructure and Scalability content that Paul and I delivered for SQL Server 2008, and the content that our colleague Bob Beachemin (blog) delivered (Clinic 10164: Essential SQL Server 2008 for Developers), our colleague Stacia Misner (blog|twitter) also delivered content for SQL Server 2008 titled and available as: Clinic 10261: Introduction to SQL Server 2008 BI Solution Development.

From here – there are many directions in which you can go. For SQL Server 2008 R2 (which is primarily a BI release – but, there are a few other topics on which to focus), you can check out these FREE eLearning classes:

And, I'm sure more Microsoft eLearning resources will continue to become available on SQL Server 2008 R2 given that it will release next month!

Finally, last, but definitely not least – consider checking out the new eBook Introducing Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 written by our good friends Ross Mistry (blog|twitter) and Stacia Misner (blog|twitter).
