Occasionally, I attend the SQL Server presentations held at Microsoft campus in Redmond. I think it is open for PNWSQL user group [http://groups.msn.com/pnwsql/aboutpnwsql.msnw] or go to http://www.pnwsql.org website for more information.
The next event is on March 12, 2008 titled “SQL Server 2008 Analysis Services – Performance, Scalability and Manageability Improvements” . You can always find the next event information on the above sites or this page. You need to print out the invitation from this website and register your vehicle when you get there. Oh! try to be on time else you may not be able to get in.
