  • Did You Know? My First Talk on SQL 2008

    I gave my first SQL Server 2008 presentation yesterday, and also spoke at a Launch Event for the first time. It was a terrific experience, primarily because it forced me to really start digging into SQL Server 2008. I had been doing so much 2005 training recently, I just really hadn't had a chance to really USE 2008, although I have dutifully ...
