Well, the first SQL Server training class with ASPE is going to happen in Phoenix, AZ on February 17-18, 2010. I am very excited about this class as well will be covering SQL Server 2005 and 2008 primarily. The old SQL Server 200 topics can slowly begin to fall by the way. Of course, we'll have to deal with a few upgrade discussions, but that topic aside, we can really take the time to dive deep into the newer SQL Server features.
In the course, we'll be covering SQL Server installation, administration, security, optimization and troubleshooting. Each student will have a computer to work on and about half of the activities will be hands-on labs. We cram a lot of information into the two days so many of the activities are demo only so that I can show you as much as possible in our time together.
