SQLBits 9 has now been announced as 29th September to 1st October 2011 at the Adelphi Hotel in Liverpool. This will follow the now familiar three day format, a training day, and two full days of concurrent sessions. Saturday 1st October will of course be the free community day. Despite growing the event quite dramatically over the past four years, this is something we are all very proud to have maintained and is a key factor when planning the events.
Plenty of more info to come, but in the meantime session submission is now open so why not submit an abstract?

Back in September we ad our community conference SQLBits and MS were there filming. In addition to my presentation there are a load of other good ones. The whole of the BI track was filmed. I know this is off topic slightly but it well worth taking a look.
So head over there and see what there is.
