Thanks to everyone who came along to celebrate SQL Server 2008 at our unleashed event yesterday and especially to the audience who volunteered to sit in the overflow room as we had a few AV niggles. As you can see above image David Hobbs-Mallyon one of the SQL Server product managers is also a whizz at the new AutoCollage tool we have launched, and has done a great job of capturing the buzz of the day. His other top demo of the day was on Rock band as a screaming vocalist and manic drummer! Also a big thank you to our MVPs, Tony Rogerson, Martin Bell, Simon Sabin, Jasper Smith, to wannabe MVP Suranjan Som, for their demo’s during the day and to Allan Mitchell for the best demo of the day.
If couldn’t make it or were told we were full (which we really were), there is hope in the form of SQL Bits this Saturday (13th September) at the de Havilland Conference Centre in Hatfield, Hertfordshire. It’s free and there are four tracks to choose from Dev, DBA, BI and SQL Server 2008, and those same MVP’s and a few others will be there as well.
BTW My session will be an extended version of what I showed today so if you were at SQL Server unleashed, my top tip would be “don’t come to my session”, unless you are stalking me! Seriously though please come to this event, it will be just as much fun as SQL Server unleashed, and another great opportunity to share knowledge, debate and network.
Could you please post where we can find the slides from the days presentations.
In the UK we had a Technet event at Microsoft Reading last Wednesday to celebrate the RTM of SQL Server
