We are just done with the April 2009 meeting and it was wonderful!
Tejas gave a wonderful introduction and welcome speech. He spoke about the user group in general and shared information about the upcoming TECH-ED India 2009. All UG members are eligible for a 25% discount for TECH-ED India 2009.
My session was on the XML capabilities of SQL Server 2008. We discussed almost all of the XML processing capabilities of SQL Server 2008 including the capability to Generate, load, query, validate and modify XML documents. We discussed XML indexes as well.
There were some give-away items, in addition to ice-cream and snacks, like some copies of SQL Server standard magazine, PASS 2007 Summit DVDs and some technical books and stickers, pens etc.
