What do you want in a SQL Server Dev Seminar?

With the SQL Server 2008 Bible winding down, I'm ready to begin planning another round of SQL Server seminars. Since this crowd is smart, opinionated, and vocal, who better to ask for advice? If you have a minute, I’d sure appreciate it if you took this quick survey:

Hi Paul,

Just FYI I went to take the survey and it keeps telling me I already have, even though I just found out about it from your tweet.

As to your question, would love to see:

1. Good practices for coding stored procs, funcs, etc

2. How to use the tools, like profiler and/or analyzer to do tuning and testing.

It's working now - got the issue resolved with the link to Constant Contact. So far, I've learned that my wife wants to attend a seminar in Maui. All in favor say Aye?

1. Would love to see how different components of SQL Server gets used in real-life scenario projects, I guess I'm tired of those "Hello World" samples :)

2. Would like to hear more of Unit Testing tools (if any exists or if anything is getting cooked @ MSFT). Again, here I usually hear less from MSFT and they usually display "Hello World" types of simple demos

3. Pitfalls - What are the pitfalls of each components, if that can be highlighted, that can be a things people will watch-for before choosing an solutions for their problems
