SQLNorthEast (NEWCASTLE) SQL SERVER USER GROUP

Network, learn, ask a question, meet other folk, get fed - these are all things that happen at user group events. These events are a really great opportunity to socialise in an informal learning experience - if you want your own exposure then come and do a 1 - 5 minute nugget in front of your peers or use it as an opportunity to ask for help with any issues that may arise at work.

Remember to tell your friends and the people you work with; make sure you register as soon as you can.

Registration can be done via Eventbrite

5.30pm – 6:00pm Registration and networking
6:00 – 6:15pm Round Table discussion and Nuggets - ALL
6:25pm - 7:25pm – You don't need Enterprise Edition for that! - William Durkin
7:25 - 7:40pm - Break
7:40pm – 8:40pm - TBC - Andre Kamman
8:45pm - Feedback and Close

 

Finally: Drinks on the Quayside :)

 

Featured Presentations:

William Durkin - You don't need Enterprise Edition for that!

The most coveted features of SQL Server are made available in Enterprise Edition and are sometimes released into Standard Edition a few years later. This often leaves a vast group of users who "window shop" the latest and greatest features and return to the office wishing they never saw those features presented.

This session will show you how you can achieve the same, or at least a similar, outcome to some of those features without having to fork out for Enterprise Edition licenses or breaking any license agreements. You will leave the session with a set of solution concepts covering Partitioning, Data Compression and High Availability that you can build upon or extend and maybe save you and your company a nice pile of cash.
