Just a quick note about VSLive! this week in New York, which I'll be speaking at on Tuesday.
Looks like a pretty good conference lineup
, with a good amount of SQL Server content (even though neither of the tracks are called SQLLive in this one). Unfortunately, I'll miss the Data Explosion keynote, as I'll be on the train to NY at that time, but luckily there is a lot of other interesting content on the schedule!
I'll be doing my ADO.NET 2.0 Enhancements for SQL Server talk, focusing on features like SqlBulkCopy, MARS, asynchronous commands, etc. I've written some new and improved demos for the talk, so it should be a good time -- my only worry is fitting all of my content into the somewhat-short 60-minute slots that VSLive provides. A good problem to have, no doubt! I'll try to post once or twice from the show with updates about what happens there, so watch this space if you're interested.
