Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Summit – Twin Cities…
Went to this all day Thursday in the cites. Went to the developer track. Learned about programming with SQL 2005, then about the new
SQL Server Integration Services and how to do data mining and things like that. Then learned about Advanced SQL Server Reporting Services and the changes in 2005, and then
learned about the new Service Broker Service in SQL 2005, and finished up by learning about SQL Server Express 2005, the replacement for MSDE 2000. Also there were two keynotes, in the
beginning and then the end, the first one was on IT infrastructure and how the Windows Server System can make it easier, etc. The last one was on SQL Server Tips and Tricks..Overall
it was a good experience, learning about SQL Server 2005 that will come out later this year, and how we can use it in our organization to make things easier and more efficient.
