After one heck of a trip to Orlando, FL for SQL Connections, I'm back in Redmond. Here is a quick re-cap of my sessions and links to session content...
SMS312 -- Be More Productive with SQL Server 2005 Tools
SMS313 -- Deep Dive into Database Mail
SMS315 -- Solving Common Scenarios with Management Studio Reports
MSUnplugged -- 10 minute demo of transparently improving your application's performance. (Tools: Database Engine Tuning Advisor, Profiler, Management Studio)
It never ceases to amaze me how many people are adopting SQL Server 2005. There were 200 people in my generic tools session, 90 people in the Database Mail session, 60 people in the Management Studio Reports session. Many of the attendees were fairly new to SQL Server 2005.
As promised, I'm posting links to references I've made in my sessions.

I was in 2 of your sessions and I just wanted to share with you how much I enjoyed and learned from them. I never expected that there was so much to learn about DBMail and the BPA has helped a lot after I got back home :)
