PDC 2005 Videos and Slides and demos are now online

The PDC 2005 videos are now online (via http://blogs.msdn.com/mswanson/archive/2005/10/24/484434.aspx). Oleg has distilled the XML and language specific presentations.

And finally, from that list, here is the pointer to my presentation:

DAT405: SQL Server 2005: Deep Dive on XML and XQuery
Speaker: Michael Rys
Managing semi-structured and markup data is becoming an increasingly important aspect of data management. Besides storing XML natively in a database such as SQL Server 2005, it is as important to extract the information stored in the XML documents. This presentation dives into XQuery, the emerging standard to query and manipulate XML data; it discusses how SQL Server 2005 supports XQuery and XML DML; how to use these technologies to address typical scenarios and how to optimize for performance.

    Hi Zack

    It works better now in the middle of the night. :-). I would recommend to way a couple of days. The content will be available for the next 6 months or so, I have been told.

    Regarding my presentation, unfortunately most of the animation slides are not synchronized correctly with my presentation and some slides even got corrupted in the post processing for the online production. Sorry about that…
