Next week we kick of another year of SQLUG.BE evening sesions.
To be sure we kick-off properly, we hired a top-speaker, namely Dirk Gubbels. Dirk is one of our best guest speakers and by far one of the best SQL Server professionals.
Dirk Gubbels is a senior consultant at Microsoft, and has been working with SQL Server since version 4.2.
As one of the few Microsoft Certified Database Architects he has been involved in the most demanding SQL server based applications in Belgium and all over the EMEA region.
His main focus areas are Design, Performance and Availability for both OLTP and Business Intelligence environments.
Upgrading from SQL Server 2005 to 2008 may look very easy and straightforward, but there are always risks involved.
The goal of this session is to identify these risks, and show proven ways to mitigate these, or reduce the impact.
The second part of the session will show some techniques for minimizing downtime during the upgrade, to a point where the application can remain online.
This session will focus on the upgrade process for the Database engine, not on the differences between the versions, or the upgrade process of other SQL Server components
