I am giving 3 presentations at SQL PASS 2007 in Denver:
Wednesday, September 19th, 9:45am to 11am, room 709:
DBA-317-M The Next Release of Microsoft SQL Server: Beyond Relational
(co-presenting with Kevin Farlee)
Main focus will be the new features in the areas of unstructured and semistructured data management in SQL Server 2008.
Wednesday, September 19th, 1:30pm to 2:45pm, room 709:
AD-407-M Deep Dive into XQuery and XML in Microsoft SQL Server: Common Problems & Best Practice Solutions
This is the same presentation I gave at TechEd 2007, a bit shortened to fit into the timeslot. Focus is on SQL Server 2005 XQuery and XML optimizations, however they also will apply to SQL Server 2008.
Thursday, September 20th, 1:30pm to 2:45pm, room 709:
AD-312-M Building Spatial Application with Microsoft SQL Server
(co-presenting with Isaac Kunen)
This will be an updated presentation of the chalktalk that I gave at TechEd 2007. Main focus is that the demo runs now on the bits that will be shipping :).
We merged the Friday 4pm presentation on managing unstructured and semistructured data (AD-313-M) with the presentation on “Beyond Relational” that Kevin and I will give on Wednesday. Primarily because the two presentations had a large overlap and neither Shan nor Srini were able to attend.
