Final TechEds of the year coming up in November

It's been a little hectic since I came back from the China/Hong Kong trip. I've been spending a lot of time getting decks ready for more TechEds and an internal training program. I've also been doing a course to get my PADI Open Water Diver certification in preparation for a two-week dive trip to Wakatobi in Indonesia I'm doing at Christmas with a friend. Phew - still need to find time for blog posts though...

The final two TechEds of the year are Tech·Ed:Developers (Nov 7-10) and Tech·Ed:IT Forum (Nov 13-17) in Barcelona. Both Don Vilen and I will be going to both and we'll be doing the following sessions:


  • Upgrade Benefits of SQL Server 2005 for Developers
  • Security in SQL Server 2005 
  • Be More Productive with SQL Server 2005 tools
  • SQL Querying Tips and Techniques
  • Performance Tuning


  • DBCC CHECKDB: Magic, Monsters and Myths
  • Database Maintenance in SQL Server 2005
  • End-to-End: How a query executes (once each week)

As usual, we'll be around all through the conferences and would love to spend time talking to you - stop by and say hi.

See you there!
