Thanks for catching that, Dan! Just added it.
We have had a few roadshows in Maine concerning Microsoft products. I'm currently working with Microsoft Reporting tools, mainly SSRS and SSAS. Do your roadshows touch upon these products? If so, is there a plan for a show in Maine within the next few months? If not, can some information about these products be included? Thanks.
I don't expect Jim and I will be covering those areas in the next few months (though we are hoping to get on the road again), so community-driven events might help.
For SQL, there's SQL Saturday (Waltham, MA) on April 2nd (www.sqlsaturday.com/.../eventhome.aspx) should have a wide variety of topics. Plus there are SQL user groups in Portsmouth, NH (seacoastsql.sqlpass.org) and Waltham, MA (http://www.nesql.org and http://bostonbi.org).
Of course, I'll post if I hear of anything else, especially in Maine.
