Upcoming Local Events

I’ve been behind in my posting’s but also in announcements about upcoming events. Even the ones i’m putting on! 🙂 So here’s a good summary of upcoming events.

March 7th. Code Trip.

“The Code Trip is a 22-city tour being done by the evangelism team at Microsoft. Salt Lake City is one of our first stops immediately following the MIX08 conference in Las Vegas. Come join the greater Utah user groups for a discussion on some of the newest Microsoft technologies. Learn what is powering some of the Code Trip systems with WPF and Silverlight. We’ll bring stuff to give away and we’ll find some place to have a geek dinner afterwards for those who would like to join us. If you are doing something great with .NET technologies, we want to hear from you as well! We’re video logging the entire trip and want to give developers a chance to share their story. Come join the groups at Franklin Covey on March 7 from 3-5pm.” for more info

What do Geek’s do late at night when upgrading servers?

Ok so have you ever really wondered what IT Geek’s do when it’s late at night and they are upgrading servers. Influenced by to much pizza, Mtn Dew and red bull. This little video was made by some former coworkers during a upgrade from SQL 2000 to SQL 2005 that was 3 years in the making! My only complaint is that I was not there to see this in person!

Gentleman my hat’s off to you for making it through your upgrade with Style. 🙂
