Wednesday is the first full day of the conference and the number of people around doubled.
The keynote was interesting. I’ve already written about that so I won’t say anymore.
The first session I decided to attend was by Mark Souza of SQLCat, the customer advisory team. He went over what they’ve seen with customers and how the various features of SQL 2008 have been used. Second session, after lunch was also by the CAT team and concerned security and auditing, covering some of the 2008 features, TDE auditing and the new key management options.
The last session I did was Paul Randal’s corruption survival. Paul’s always entertaining. He did a whole set of demos and told some rather frightening stories.
The day ended with a trip to the dojo and an MVP party. Photos to follow sometime.
