TechEd 2007 (6/3-6/7 in Orlando, FL) is going to be an exciting event for SQL Server. The next release of SQL Server, codenamed Katmai, will have a big presence with several sessions covering features that will show up in the release. I for one am conducting a session on Wednesday morning (DAT204) which will cover many of the new manageability features going into Katmai. If you're @ TechEd and see me, stop and say hi! Stay tuned for more from TechEd.
