If you work with SQL Server make sure you catch one of the SQL Relay training days. The event is kicking off on 21 May and offers free SQL Server training at various locations across the UK. Each day will have 2 sessions.

The morning session is with Morris Novello, SQL Server Product Manager and Andrew Fryer, Technical Evangelist, Development and Platform Group at Microsoft, covering the technical challenges facing IT and dev organisations and also providing an overview on SQL Server 2012. Andrew will then dip into the new features within SQL Server 2012.

The afternoon session is led by SQL Server MVP's, among them Chris Testa O'Neill, Allan Mitchell, Martin Bell, Jamie Thompson, Chris Webb and Tony Rogerson. Some events will also run into the evening.
