Free Wrox SQL Server Community Training

I thought it only fitting to have my first post be about an event that Brian Knight, the crew at Pragmatic Works and I have been working on for several weeks. We’ve teamed up for an incredible set of Webinars focused on SQL Server and Business Intelligence taught by best selling authors, many of which are authors for Wrox. Reponse has been fantastic and we’re getting close to being full on several sessions.

The Webinars are scheduled for February 22- March 26, 2010 and you can register here for one or all of the sessions. Below is a partial list of authors and session information.

    I was unable to get the videos actually play. The page opens, but the part of the page for the video just displays black and no controls, etc. show.
