Go to http://www.soho.ca/sohosme/overview/tradeshow_van.asp in order to register for the tradeshow, free when completed online. If you are growing your business, attend the paid conferences and visit with the many sponsors at the expo. Otherwise, there are feature stage presentations and many fun booths to occupy your afternoon. I may see you there if you do plan on attending. It’s on Tuesday October 30, 2007 from 10a-5pm and will be held at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver downtown. Here is the map to the hotel – http://www.soho.ca/sohosme/about/location_van.shtml#Location.

I hope to see you there.

Day 1 of "Maintaining MS SQL Server 2005 Database" training course

I am currently taking a 5-day training course at the Nexient Learning Centre in Vancouver and today was the first class. It is about administering and maintaining MS SQL Server 2005 databases in the infrastructure. Key topics that will be covered include installing/configuring SQL Server 2005; managing databases/files; disaster recovery; managing security; monitoring SQL server; transferring data; automating administrative tasks; implementing replication; and maintaining high availability.

So far, it’s going well. I hope to learn everything there is about MS SQL Server 2005 for the duration of this 5-day course.
