Good Week

Posted: July 19, 2010 in Uncategorized

I always forget when the user group meeting is sneaking up on me, and then at the last minute something reminds me, sometimes it really is the last minute (OK they had to call me once from the meeting). Over the past month we have had MVP’s Ben Holting, Glenn Berry, Kalen Delany and even I spoke that the local group. Just this year alone we have had over 25% of the year as MVP Speakers. Well this month is just as big. We welcome Kevin Cox from the SQL Cat team. If you don’t know who he is I recommend you come, have you ever wondered how the big SQL Server shops do it? How does Microsoft recommend the way they do it? This has got to be the session for you. There is more information on the User Group page, the event starts just before 6 to network, I hope to see you there.
