SQL Server 2008 Unleashed

Although the official UK launch of SQL Server 2008 merged in with the launches of Windows Server 2008, and Visual Studio 2008 back in March, we wanted to celebrate the actual release as well.  So please join us in TVP on 10th September for SQL Server Unleashed.

The day is aimed at the DBA and will be much more technical than launch was. Kicking off the event will be Prem Mehra from the SQL Customer Advisory Team. He’s going to give you some real stories on the large scale SQL Server deployments his team has worked on.  We have also asked the MVP’s to join in with short demos of their favourite features and to take your questions at the end of the day.
