Keynote @ VSTS Database Professional Launch in Waltham, MA

Visual Studio Team Edition for Database Professionals is being released in a matter of days (11/30/2006) and Microsoft is putting on a series of launch events around the country.

Want to see what it can do?  I’ve been asked to give the keynote at the Boston-area launch event.

“Joining Forces: Assimilating Data Experts into the Development Team and Process“

Database Professionals have always been an integral part of the software development team. Now, not only is Microsoft providing a tailor-made Visual Studio Team Edition role-based experience, but also access to the full benefits of Visual Studio Team Foundation Server.  Come learn how Visual Studio Team Edition for Database Professionals improves collaboration across the full development team and increases application quality with better control over database changes and automated database testing.

I’ll be doing demos of the key features of DBPro (aka “Data Dude“), discussing how it fits in with Team System and Team Foundation Server, and also why it’s important.
