Yesterday I attended the SQLBits conference. This is a community conference based around SQL Server with SQL developers and DBA’s attending the conference to discuss anything SQL Server, unlike other conferences, this was based at Aston University in Birmingham.
It was a great day, met with some really interesting people and attended some great sessions. It has really drawn my attention to certain areas which I need to look into.
However, it could have went horrible wrong. A lot of the sessions where based on SQL Server 2008, however with CTP6 there is a bug which causes it to stop working on February 29th (Friday). Everything is fine every other day, just didn’t like leap years. Conference could have been a whole different story if it was the day before. More here.
