Interesting article, thanks. Unfortunately I can't make it this year due to a scheduling conflict. I am new in my job and I am not even sure there would be a budget for it.

I recently went to a SQL Saturday session in NY and I thought it was fantastic. One of the door prizes was the entire 2009 summit on DVD. Unfortunately I didn't win it. I am considering buying it for the hefty price tag of $595. Can anyone offer guidance on the DVD set? Does it offer a good value? Can you see enough detail in the presentations to be useful?

Thanks.

The DVDs are very good. They're not videos of the presenter, they're desktop captures + audio. so you don't have to worry about whether or not you can see the screen clearly, you see exactly what was on the presenter's desktop.

That's great. Thanks for your quick reply. Can you also hear audience participation and questions?

No. The speaker is supposed to repeat audience questions before answering, most of them do most of the time.

You can hear some of the audience. Some presenters are good about repeating questions, some aren't.

Overall I thought they were pretty good.

Thanks. You two should get a commission, I think you just made a sale.

Depends how loud they shout.
