Over the past few years, Jean-Rene' Roy has hosted a Developers conference in the Spring in Montreal. This conference focuses on both .NET and SQL topics. This is DevTeach and SQLTeach. I have had the privilege of presenting at this conference since 2005. The content is great and the attendees ask great questions. This year, it is in Toronto this spring. If you are planning on attending, please let me know that you read my blog. Things are kicking off on May 12 with a Party with Palermo event. I will be doing sessions on Upgrading SQL, SQL Express, and Resource Governor. Fellow SQLBlogger, Paul Nielsen, will have a pre-con workshop on Design and Optimization Best Practices with SQL Server.
