Baltimore SQL Server Users Group just announced that Microsoft's Jim Dugan will be the speaker at their meeting on Thursday this week. Jim will be covering the "Top 30 Features in SQL Server 2005."

This meeting takes place in Linthicum at SM Consulting starting at 6:30 PM.

I'll miss this meeting as I will be at Roanoke Valley .NET on Thursday evening covering Microsoft Team System, but I always enjoy Jim's presentations. Jim is also the person who did more to get me a job at Microsoft than anyone else, and so I still owe him big time!

Jim is a systems architect with Microsoft's public sector team.
