The place where I page to when my brain is full up of stuff about the Microsoft platform

Upgrading to SQL Server 2008

Back on 19th March I did a presentation on upgrading to SQL Server 2008, as part of the UK Launch event in Birmingham.  I have now got the feedback from this session and I thought it would be interesting to share some of it.  Microsoft’s privacy policy is far more stringent than any organisation I know so I have no idea who these comments came from, but that is the main reason it takes so long to get the surveys.

My favourite was:

Upgrade from 2005 looked easy therefore left and went to lunch and exhibition.”  That was the plan for SQL Server 2008; make it so easy so that IT Pro’s get to have lunch.

Also we got back

“As we currently use 2005 infrastructure knowing what to do when the migration is required . Very informative by both presenters. Thankyou I found the session very informative and I took a lot of notes in preparation”

But on the downside

Too dumbed down not enough technical content.”

No clear indication of upgrade tools to download.”

So you can’t please all the people all the time and for those that didn’t see the last slide of this session :


And the links from this slide are:

The point of all of this is that your comments are picked up, your evaluations do matter, so when we’re on the TechNet Road Shows next week please fill in the feedback as it’s more fun for us and for you if you get the road shows you want.
