Speaking at St. Louis Day of .NET

I've been chosen to speak again on SDS.  This time I'll be in St. Louis MO.  It's a very cool location to have a conference so I hope that if you are available you attend. 


The Benefits Of SQL Server Data Services

Organizations often face challenges in managing their IT infrastructure when they are growing rapidly. In such situations, they may need to increase their data storage capabilities. Consequently, a large amount of time is spent in ramping up server capacity. This leads to increased installation and maintenance costs. SQL Server Data Services helps organizations overcome these challenges. This talk will focus on the benefits, features, object model and ease of use of SQL Server Data Services. Learn how your projects can benefit from a hosted data storage and query processing service. See by example how to design your program to use SQL Server Data Services.

CodeStock Agenda


The final schedule for Codestock has been posted at  I'm scheduled to speak about SQL Data Services (SDS) at 9:30 AM on Friday the 26th.  This is the second time in a row that I'm an opening speaker at an event.  I wonder if I could get a mid-day event next time I speak.  I guess they have the new guys wake the developers up in the morning. 

If you are planning on hearing me speak, plan on getting stuff thrown at you.  I ask almost as many questions of the crowd as they ask of me.  I'll be jacked up on caffeine and I love talking about data in the cloud.  Here is a list of some talks I think are interesting and I hope to catch them all:
