The next Minnesota SQL Server User Group meeting is coming up next week on Tuesday, December 20. The topic this month is panel discussion on SQL Server 2012.  One thing to point out is that the meetings are no longer in Bloomington anymore, they are over at the Microsoft Technology Center in Edina.

SQL Server 2012 Panel:

Steve Hughes is Principal Consultant at Magenic Technologies. His area of expertise is in data and business intelligence architecture on the Microsoft SQL Server platform. He was also the data architect for a SaaS company which delivered a transportation management solution for fleets across the United States. Steve has co-authored two books and regularly presents on SQL Server and data architecture.

Ajay Nangia is a Data Platform Technology Specialist at Microsoft. In this role, Ajay enables customers and partners to develop, deploy, and support solutions based on Microsoft’s Database Technologies. Ajay has a long history of working with SQL Server – from its internals to application and BI development on the platform.

Others – as far as I know there will be a few others on the panel as well. Jin Cho from Microsoft will be there along with possibly Lara Rubbelke from Microsoft and myself (maybe Jason Strate as well?).

Hope to see you there and looking forward to some good discussions and questions regarding SQL Server 2012!
