  • Comments 2

Brian Madsen pinged me today, at almost the same time as my automatic notification arrived. This month the Linked .Net Users Group has two great Live Meetings as pare of their ongoing program (recordings of previous sessions are archived here).

Session 1 – register here

April 8th 03:00 Sydney time - Greg Low - iFTS on SQL Server 2008

Our April Speaker is going to be Greg Low. He’s a Microsoft MVP from down under.

Here is some information: Developers like queries that are very constrained. Users don’t. In this session, Greg will show how iFTS in SQL Server 2008 allows developers to build systems that answer the queries the users really want to ask. This session got great reviews when Greg delivered it at TechEd Developers in Barcelona recently.

About Greg Low: Greg is an internationally recognized consultant, developer and trainer. He has been working in development since 1978 and holds a PhD in Computer Science. Greg is the country lead for Solid Quality (www.solidq.com.au), a SQL Server MVP and a Microsoft Regional Director.

He is currently one of only two people in the world to hold the new Microsoft Masters certification for SQL Server 2008 and teaches internal SQL Server classes for Microsoft on their Redmond campus
