Yesterday was my first time as a speaker to a SQL Saturday. The event was at Humber College in the Toronto area. 15-20 people attended my two sessions on SSIS and Visual Studio 2010 Database Development Tools. Considering the fact that about 60 people showed up, I can say that the topics l talked about were popular. I enjoyed the fact that this was a whole day on SQL Server only. I assisted some of the other sessions and they were very good. This also a chance to meet valuable people, both speakers and attendees, and learn on SQL Server features.
We'll try to do something similar to this next year in Montreal. I hope we'll have SQL Server Denali RTM at that time!
