I have two speaking engagements for the week of October 19:
South Florida SQL Server User Group - West Palm Beach - October 23, 2008
I'll be giving a presentation called Fortress SQL Server, which looks at how to best utilitize SQL Server security features. The audience is DBAs and developers and covers features from SQL Server 2000 through SQL Server 2008.
SQL Saturday #8 - Orlando - October 25, 2008
I've updated my Protecting Your SQL Server from Treasure Seekers presentation to include SQL Server 2008. The audience covers all three arenas of technical folks: system administrators, developers, and DBAs. It also looks like I'm working as part of the lunch crew as a volunteer. That should be a blast. When I have time, I love to volunteer because you meet more folks and you feel like a greater part of a successful event. If you think you might be able to help, it wouldn't hurt to drop a line to Andy Warren to see if they can use you some place.
