I am honored that I have been invited to speak at Virtual TechDays on Aug 18, 2010 by Microsoft. I will be speaking on my favorite subject of Spatial Datatypes.
This exclusive Online event will have 30 deep technical sessions per day – and, attendance is completely FREE. There are dedicated tracks for Architects, Software Developers / Project Managers, Infrastructure Managers / Professionals and Enterprise Developers.
Register for the event over here.
Date and Time : August 18, 2010, 4:15pm – 5:15pm
Developing with SQL Server Spatial and Deep Dive into Spatial Indexing
Microsoft SQL Server 2008 delivers new spatial data types that enable you to consume, use, and extend location-based data through spatial-enabled applications. Attend this session to learn how to use spatial functionality in next version of SQL Server to build and optimize spatial queries. This session outlines the new geography data type to store geodetic spatial data and perform operations on it, use the new geometry data type to store planar spatial data and perform operations on it, take advantage of new spatial indexes for high performance queries, use the new spatial results tab to quickly and easily view spatial query results directly from within Management Studio, extend spatial data capabilities by building or integrating location-enabled applications through support for spatial standards and specifications and much more.
I will be sharing few of the real life tricks and tips which I have recently picked up from my consultation on spatial database implementation.
If you have never attended my session on this subject I strongly suggest that you attend the event as this is going to be very interesting conversation between us. If you have attended this session earlier, this will contain few new information which will for sure interesting to share with all.
