Focusing on setup and development using SQL Server products from 2000 to 2008 and beyond. Also about anything geeky that compels me to write a blog entry.

SQL Saturday #81 Birmingham

Today I had the great pleasure of meeting other SQL Server professionals from all over the Southeast, and listening to some great presentations on everything from design and statistics to the upcoming SQL "Denali".

We had five different sessions to choose from in each of the six time slots. My choices today were

Database Design
SQL "Denali" High Availability
SQL Statistics
Building a Professional Development Plan
Table Partitioning
Advanced DW Scenarios in SSIS

It was not just informative. These events are about networking and being a part of a community centered around the SQL Server product. Plus, on top of great sessions and door-prizes, we were provided with coffee, doughnuts, sodas, and a nice box lunch. If you have not been to one, I highly recommend it.
