It's been a busy week for Coeo, with the SQLBits conference being the highlight of our European SQL Server conference season. We've been involved with the conference for sometime, but SQLBits 9 was our first time as Gold sponsors and the event was a great success!
We were pleased to deliver one pre-conference training day and three conference sessions as follows (in order of appearence):
Christian Bolton (MCA, MCM, MVP) - Upgrading your DBA Skills to SQL Server Denali
Chirag Roy (MCM) - Transaction Log Performance and Troubleshooting - Deep Dive
Chris Testa O'Neill (MVP) - Controlling resources in SQL Server

If you haven't signed-up for one of these events, and the topics sound interesting - please do register and come along. It's a great opportunity to discuss new technology topics and network with others in the SQL Server Community. Additionally, there are many other events taking place around the country, so check out the SQL Relay schedule and find an event near you.
We're excited to be involved in so many community events, it's the annual SQL PASS Summit in Seattle next week. We have four of our team attending and Christian and Chris are both presenting at the conference!
