Sorting it all Out Michael Kaplan's random stuff of dubious value Be sure to read the disclaimer here first!
Looks like they are starting to gear up for Tech·Ed 2005 (starting June 5-10)!
You can see session info here.
My sessions (slightly modified abstracts from before, mainly to get rid of that odd use of the word "exploit" and a few other weirdnesses):
DAT290 Databases for the World: Designing Multilingual Databases Using SQL Server 2005 Wednesday, June 8 10:15 AM - 11:30 AM-->
Speaker(s): Michael Kaplan
Session Type(s): Breakout
Track(s): Database Development
SQL Server 2005 introduces new and enhanced international features that are very important to customers in many parts of the world -- from proper Indic support to recognition of the supplementary characters used in East Asia, as well as many more important international scenarios. This session highlights the new features, and provides both code samples and advice on best practices to make good use of them.
No schedule yet, but that will make its way there eventually.
Also, for what its worth, DBA319 will be both a development and an administration topic.
To answer the questions of others, there is interest in some of the international Tech·Ed events for these topics, but no word on who will definitely want them yet. Folks who want to see these talks or any of the others in the Global Development and Deployment virtual track might want to look into whatever voting or other selection techniques are available at the International Tech·Ed they fancy.
