VTD – What a start !!! September 17th, 2008

Vinod Kumar

Whew, Day 1 of VTD is over but how glad am I to see that this was a super-duper hit for me :). Close to 600+ people logged online for each of my session. I couldnt have asked for more. Today I talked about “SQL Server Security” and “Beyond Relational: Managing unstructured and semi-structured data with SQL Server 2008”. I had a lot to talk and I was super excited in doing each of these sessions. We did have some audio glitches but that is part of the online experiences :) … But, I am sure people who attended had a wonderful time. Please feel free to drop a line to me over the blogs.

Now, that was not the end. I have two awesome sessions lined up for tomorrow – “5 hidden gems inside SQL Server” and “Extended Events” to speak. Moreover, there are also sessions around “Performance tuning” and “Top 10 DMV’s you must know”. These will be equally exciting sessions for tomm and you must attend them. Apologize for the shameless plugs, couldnt resist :) …

The sessions start 10AM IST and you need to connect here to join us.
