I just heard about a great FREE event taking place in in Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney at the end of January that I thought I recommend you attend to find out more about the great new features in SQL 2008 R2. Its the SQL Server 2008 R2 Hot Lap which is being run by Wardy IT Solutions.

The SQL Server 2008 R2 Hot Lap will be the first SQL Server 2008 R2 workshops held in Australia.  They are a ½ day catered workshop and they are free to attend.
