Welcome to the SQL Server 2008 Experience. We are pleased to bring you this Experience in 11 languages so please select the language of your choice above. For IT Professionals and Developers we have a series of brief and insightful interviews with the SQL Server Engineering team discussing the many technologies in SQL Server 2008. For Decision Makers we have short videos which go “behind the scenes” with our customers and show how they are using SQL Server 2008 to tackle some big challenges. And finally, we also have some video snippets For Fun which we hope you will enjoy.
NOTE: Purple Haze not included :)
Folks are really starting to notice the excellent work Robin, Kyle, and Chris Hart (who couldn't be in the video because she is in the UK) have been doing with virtual worlds. Make sure to visit ReactionGrid if you want to get some virtual world love and rent some space.
A BIG thanks to Shawn Weisfeld for making the connections.
And of course an extra special thanks to Brian Johnson for filming the vid and posting to Channel9. You rock!

Are you a UG lead? Feeling the pain of running the group? Need a hug? Well subscribe to Jay Smith's (http://jaysmith.us/) new radio show! You can catch it here:
Over the last several years I have been involved with the developer community that has been growing in Northwest Arkansas. After attending a Community Leadership Summit in Dallas, TX hosting by Caleb Jenkins I realized that many user group leaders struggle with the same problems, after looking around I realized that there wasn't really any resources around to help us. So I decided to start a podcast dedicated to the ones that keep user groups and technical communities going. Hopefully through open dialog and sharing we can help make it easier to keep them running and maybe even take them to the next level.
I am currently working on scheduling several of the shows and getting them ready. Please go ahead and subscribe to the feed and you won't miss a show.

Grant Holliday wrote a great blog post a while back that I have been meaning to surface to my readers for some time. If you haven’t seen it yet, you can find it here:
Here is the opening paragraph from the post that lays out what Gran is trying to do:
Team Foundation Server 2010 was released in April 2010. Since then, there have been a number of important Service Packs, Cumulative Updates and hotfixes that have been made available based upon internal usage at Microsoft and customer feedback via the support organisation. This blog post is an attempt at bringing together all the updates that are currently available.
He is keeping it updated consistently and you should definitely read this post if you use TFS 2010.
We are almost done with our Visual Studio 11 Roadshow so I wanted to make the mats available for folks that wanted them.
