SQL Server: The Undiscovered Country

Lewis and Clark. Stanley and Livingstone. Armstrong and Aldrin. Never bound by 9-to-5 TPS reports, they forged dauntlessly into uncharted territory, driven to discover, learn, and conquer the unknown. This session will be nowhere near that exciting or dangerous, but will explore features of SQL Server that you may not know, and give you the tools to do your own discovery. Learn about all those weird functions, undocumented procedures, and how to find and use them yourself. We'll also cover how to "hack" SQL Server and possibly find even more interesting features...from the future!

    Rob Volk is a database administrator in the Atlanta, Georgia area since 2001, having worked in the wireless telecom, utility billing, and credit card processing industries.  He started using SQL Server with version 6.5 and is very glad to have upgraded since then. He has presented at several SQL Saturdays and user groups in the US, and looks forward to his American jokes falling flat with the UK audience, which may prompt a poor imitation of The Parrot Sketch. In his spare time he accomplishes more than he does on the job, just don't tell his boss.
