Scottish Area SQL Server User Group Meeting, Edinburgh - Wednesday 5th October
We will also have the usual food and prize draws!
18:00 - 18:30 - Introduction and Networking
18:30 - 19:30 - BI features in Denali
Denali is the next release of SQL Server. There are some great new features lined up to be delivered and Andrew will look into what enhancements to the BI stack are on the release schedule, such as BISM and Project Crescent
Andrew is a technical evangelist at Microsoft UK. This means that he spends time explaining the future to IT Professionals who do data management and data centre administration. As there are just under a million IT Professionals in the UK, then to reach all of these requires him spending a lot of time on line: updating his blog, doing webcasts, and the usual social media channels. However Andrew loves going to user groups and community events to swap stories and help people get the most out of the Microsoft technologies.
19:30 - 19:50 - Break
More time to Network and Food
19:50 - 20:50 - What's new for developers in Denali
The next version of SQL Server is shaping up to be a huge release and is going to have some great new features for developers. This include changes to the SQL Server Developer Tools codename Juneau. This session will look at this exciting new release with demos of features available in CTP3.
Martin is that suave and sophisticated SQL Server User Group leader who runs the SQL Server User Groups in Edinburgh and Leeds. On top of that he is one of the organisers of the biggest SQL Server conference in Europe - SQLBits. This takes place twice a year at different locations in the UK.
