Kevin Remde's IT Pro WebLog

So much to blog. So little time. So much SQL Server 2005

Kevin prepping for the SQL Events Yeah… that’s me, working hard.  For the past several weeks (several months, really) the team has been focused on learning and presenting SQL Server 2005 in all it’s glory… and doing a pretty good job of it (if I can brag a bit on my team here.)

This coming week we start our new “Best of SQL Launch” events.  SQL Server 2005 (And Visual Studio 2005 and BizTalk 2006) are officially launching on Monday, followed by several major city launch events, as well as our team’s TechNet Events where we’re doing select IT Pro-related content from the launch events.

“And this has eaten into your time for blogging?”

Yup.  I missed a couple of days there.  I hate doing that.  I like to give you something fun or useful at least once a day.  Hopefully I’ll have a little more time in the next couple of weeks to blog from hotel rooms.  I’m also considering bring my camera and video camcorder along and documenting some of the mayhem.

So… I guess today’s useful tip is that you should check out the links above and see if there is a Launch or a “Best of Launch” event coming to your area.  Next week I’ll be presenting in Omaha and Kansas City (Merriam, KS).  The following week I’m in Madison and Green Bay.  The events are filling up fast (several are closed to new registrations) mainly because we’re giving away copies of software to every attendee, so REGISTER ASAP.

And if you live in the Minneapolis, St. Paul area, please come to the BIG LAUNCH event going on at the Minneapolis Convention Center on December 14th.  I’ll be presenting Session 1 of the Data Platform track there, as well as helping out in the “Ask the Experts” area.

See you there!
