I promise this is the last time I mention SQL Bits this week, but I wanted to let you know I have got 25 free tickets for the paid for event this Friday which would normally cost £149 to attend. 

The venue is the Celtic Manor in Newport…

and is probably the next best thing to going to TechEd. There are four tracks;

  • Data warehousing,
  • Database,
  • BI,
  • Development,

specifically on SQL Server 2008 and R2, with an all star cast headed by Donald Farmer, and Thomas Kejser, the details of which are here.

If you can make the date and want to come please e-mail me (afryer@microsoft.com) with SQLBits in the title and I’ll get the tickets to the first 25 to respond.
