2008 Launch Tour

I've been a bit off radar: up to my neck in a large  sql server / dot.net project and some time off for Christmas.

Believe it or not I managed to get my thumb trapped in a Transformer on Christmas day and an ensuing infection - so if you see a consultant with a black thumb that might be me ;-)

Anyway, THE big event of the year is the joint SQL 2008, Visual Studi0 2008 and Windows Server 2008 launch.

The Irish tour is visiting four cities on following dates:

  • Thursday 31st Jan – Belfast – Radisson
  • Monday 4th Feb – Cork – Rochestown Park Hotel
  • Wednesday 6th Feb – Galway – G Hotel
  • Wednesday 13th Feb – Dublin – Morrison

To register you can visit the relevant site at http://www.mtug.ie

I'll be picking some cool new features in SQL 2008 to demo focused on the IT Pro and BI arena. Pop by to see demos of:

  • Security Improvements
  • Enhanced Mirroring
  • Declarative Management Framework
  • Resource Governor
  • Query Plan Guides
  • Data Warehousing Enhancements
  • BI Platform Enhancements
  • Enhanced Reporting and Data Mining

Hopefully see you on the tour...
