Our SQL Immersion: Dublin 2010 is fully underway with Paul Randal and Kimberly Tripp (http://www.prodata.ie/events/sqlimmersiondublin2010/). Chatting to the course attendees this is all good stuff, Paul and Kimberly are truly the best of the best Instructors world wide. Now that they have Brent Ozar working with them, the mind boggles at how much SQL expertise is in one company. Now that’s just greedy!!
I’m definitely going to sit on on some of the Performance Tuning Master classes and the DR Master Classes next week.
The bit that I’m really looking forward to is we have booked the “chefs” table at Gordon Ramsey’s restaurant in Powerscourt with Paul, Kimberly myself. Carmel and Sandra on Friday. Carmel has been touring Ireland delivering technical presentations for Microsoft on SQL 2008, SQL 2008R2 and the BI Stack, so were going to have to work heard to avoid discussing the benefits of optimise_for_adhoc in sql2008 or something like that ;-
