Discover SQL Server 2008 R2

R2 Banner 780It was bound to happen, a launch event for the upcoming release of SQL Server 2008 R2.  This is a great thing because it means we’ll be able to play with the cool new toys in production soon and start getting our client’s upgraded.  I do wonder though if there are talking dolphins in these oceans of data, but that’s a topic for another blog.  If you didn’t read the logo above, the last sentence is probably quite off.

I digress though, so… the event is happening on May 11 from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM and will be done as a joint event between PASS and Microsoft.  Below are some of the details for the event, but the most important detail is that you need to register here.
