Speaking At Chicago Suburban PASS This Week

Tomorrow night I'll have the pleasure of speaking at the August 2010 Chicago Suburban SQL Server User Group meeting.  Here's the details:

WHERE:  Microsoft Offices – 3025 Highland Parkway Suite 300, Downers Grove, IL

WHEN:  Tuesday, August 3, 2010.  6:00 – 9:00 pm

I'll be giving my presentation entitled "Backups and Restores In Depth".  I'll discuss some of the finer points of backups, restores, and how they work.  I'll also cover the three recovery models in detail and add some best practices along the way.

I'm not the only act though, Wendy Pastrick (Blog | Twitter) will also be speaking.  Her presentation is entitled "Transactional Replication 101"  Replication simplified! Learn the basic parts that make up replication, what tools are included to help you along plus a look into monitoring. We will cover the players in the game: Pubishers, Subscribers and Distributors, then delve into the data delivery process with Publications, Subscriptions and Articles, finishing up with the Log Reader and how to make sure everything is working and running smoothly.

Hope to see you there!
