If you've been looking for advanced training in the northeast, your wait is over. Paul and Kimberly will be gracing us with one of their famous "SQL Server Immersion" events the week of March 29.
This course will cover storage engine internals, indexing and performance strategies, and of course in-depth sections on database maintenance from the guy who wrote DBCC. You can't go wrong there. A complete outline is available on the course web site.
If you've never visited the Boston area, the spring is a great time to do it--we usually have great weather right in between the winter freeze and the overly-humid summer. The course location is Cambridge, MA, right near MIT: a really cool area with lots to see and do, easy access to downtown Boston via public transportation, and the weather should be perfect for some brisk evening walks around the Charles river after days of having your head pumped with SQL knowledge.
If you register soon you can take advantage of the "early bird" special, $600 off the $3100 course fee. Use registration code "EARLYBIRD" to take advantage.
Hope to see many of you there!
