Wellington SQL Server Meeting Notice

Our next meeting will be:-

17 April 2008 6pm


L7 Plunket House

126 Lambton Quay

(Lifts lock at 17:30. If you're late and there's nobody around to swipe you up, contact Adrian on 027 435 4050)

Topic 1: "Run-through: How to create and use a Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services Report"

Topic 2: "SQL Server Certification: How do I do it, why bother and what are my options?"

Did you know there are 3 Microsoft Certified IT Professional tracks in Microsoft SQL Server 2005?  What are they, and why should I care?  James will give a clearly reasoned account why certification is for you.

Presented by James Hippolite, who has been a trainer, published reviewer and solution developer for over 20 years.  He first became a Microsoft Certified Professional in 1996, when it wasn't cool.  He woke up in 2001 and realised that remaining in Desktop Applications (specifically Microsoft Access) wasn't going to feed the kids and pay for cool technology, so purposefully changed career direction into Enterprise Applications (specifically VB front-end and SQL Server backend).

He lives in Wellington and is currently employed full time in a large corporate and loving the regular hours that non-consultants enjoy.

Pizza and drinks are being provided with the kind courtesy of Microsoft.

Seating is limited to the first 50 registrations.

Please advise on if you will be attending?

Welcome to my technical blog. 

Here, I attempt to distill the Microsoft Certified Professional Developer knowledge I have accumulated since first qualifying MCP in 1996.  This blog started on 13 September 2007 as an off-shoot from my mixed up personal blog.  But it took a shot in the arm from Scott Hanselman's talk at TechEd New Zealand 08 "32 Ways To Make Your Blog Suck Less".
