Am I stuck in the past? Not really, but I like to blog about the recordings that I have recently watched. There are a lot of recordings out there on the PASS website and other places.
Recently I have had the good fortune of exploring some of the neat technology behind the Parallel Data Warehouse (PDW) in SQL Server 2008 R2. In order to get myself grounded in some of the basics around what PDW was all about, I decided to review the Dr. DeWitt keynote (Day 3) from the 2008 PASS Community Summit. The link to the WMV file is near the bottom of this page. As I watched the recording, I could recall the excitement of learning about this new technology. Whether you were fortunate enough to see this live or not, this recording demonstrates how a very smart person can explain such a new technology in a simple manner. I believe that once you watch this session, you'll want to watch the other keynotes by Dr. DeWitt as well.
