Join North East Bytes for the first event in what is the outstanding month of October!
We are pleased to welcome Andrew Fryer from Microsoft UK's Developer and Platform Group to give us the low down on SQL Server Denali
Date: Thursday 6th October 2011
Denali - What Can I Tell You?
Denali is the next release of SQL Server. It builds on the three themes of the previous version:
- Scalability and Availability
- Unstructured Data
- Business Intelligence
So I am going to dive into each of these as far as I can at the moment and give you and idea of what's coming up in the public beta
I'm a technical evangelist at Microsoft UK. What this means is that I spend my time explaining the future to IT Professionals who do data management and data centre administration. There are just under a million IT Professionals in the UK, and to reach all of these I spend a lot of time online: On my blog, doing webcasts and the usual social media channels (Twitter, Facebook). However I love going to community events to swap stories and to try and help get the most out of Microsoft technologies.
The event will be hosted in Room 120 of the Claremont Building at Newcastle University. For a detailed campus map - http://www.ncl.ac.uk/documents/Campus-Map-Print.pdf (Identified by number 32 on the maps).
