MS SQL, PASS, SQL Server
Last night I attended my first SQL Servers Users Group here in Phoenix. I a so happy that we have one. It was a good meeting, I arrived and apperantly the speaker that was supposed to present was sick and could not make it. Luckily for us, the meetings are help at the MS offices here, and a MS employee was nice enough to volunteer and do a presentation on SQL Server 08 R2 Report Builder 3.0. Lots of great information. Not really anything that I use in my daily job but still good to know and wow, I had kow idea you could do so much. PowerPivot sounds pretty awsome and I think that users are going t love being able to pull data from multiple sources and create relationships and then pivot that data. I think MS really is trying to make the end user experiance better and kudos to them for that. I am not sure, if as a DBA, that is making my job easier, but I am not employed to do easy work.
