If you happen to be in Canada, you probably have heard about Microsoft TechDays – the premier technical conference for IT professionals and developers. This year, three cities – Vancouver, Montreal and Toronto – will be hosting this 2-day event. Two years ago, I did a presentation “on SQL Server on Hyper-V” as well as “free/cheap tools for IT professionals. This year, I will be delivering a presentation on Upgrading to SQL Server R2 and SQL Server “Denali” (now officially announced as SQL Server 2012) in Toronto on the 26th of October 2011. If you’re in town, let’s catch up for a cup of coffee as I will be at the Data Platform booth the whole day (except during my presentation) answering questions and providing guidance on how you can maximize your investments on the SQL Server platform. I’ll see you there.
