Session abstract of Jacob Sebastian, a SQL Server MVP from Ahmedabad, Gujarat, on XML Schema Collections has been approved by the PASS Summit Program Committee and Jacob will have the, in his own words, ‘great’ opportunity to speak at the PASS Summit 2009 in Seattle, Washington later this year.

2009PASS

The presentation - SQL Server 2008 - Create powerful XML Schema collections to validate your XML documents focuses on explaining how effectively XML Schema Collections can be used to validate XML documents that a database application exchanges. Incidentally, the presentation is based on Jacob’s recent book, The Art of XSD – SQL Server XML Schema Collections, which as we’ve blogged about before is available as a free download.

If you are at the PASS Summit in November, you’ll find Jacob at the Red-Gate booth. Be warned, his XML enthusiasm is infectious!
