The free SQL Server training phenomenon known as SQLSaturday is coming to central Texas (Austin) on October 1, 2011. This event is coordinated by CACTUSS – The Capitol Area Central Texas Users of SQL Server – and my good friend and fellow PASS Chapter Leader, Wes Brown (twitter | blog).
The final presentation selections were announced today. There will be 30 sessions covering Business Intelligence, DBA, Application Development, and a Bonus track for that hodge-podge of sessions which apparently did not fit neatly into the other tracks!
And, (shameless plug here) – I will be presenting “Managing SQL Server in the Enterprise with TLAs”. Kind of a goofy title, I know, but here is the pitch: Technologists are overwhelmed with TLAs (Three-Letter Acronyms) in their everyday life. This session will introduce several SQL Server 2008 and 2008 R2 features designed to make a DBA’s life easier. If you aren’t using CMS, PBM, EPM, MDW, UCP or DAC – come learn what they are and the potential benefits for managing your environment.
