Arcane Talks

On Thursday July 12th I’ll be speaking at the Birmingham Software Developers Association (BSDA). You can get directions from the club’s website, .

I’ll be speaking on the subject of SQL Server Compact Edition. It’s been a while since I blogged about this, so I thought I’d provide a few links for quick reference.

As promised, here is a link to the Power Point presentation (in PDF format) I used during the presentation:

 SSCE presentation for BSDA user group

My very first post was back in January 2007:

My next series of posts began on April 10th, and described how to create databases using the various tools available to you.

The complete C# and VB.Net code samples were posted April 13th, 2007:

And finally, the series of posts I mentioned on system Views started with this post on April 16th, 2007:

If you want to see all of my SSCE posts, simply click the SQL Server Compact Edition tag over in the categories area, or use this link:

Please note each of these links is a starting point, be sure to read the blog for the next few days after each link in order to get the full story.

And now a question, I’m working up material for a new presentation. Debating between SQL Server 2005 Full Text Searching and SQL Server Integration Services. Any opinions?

Eventually I’ll do both, but would like to do the first one based on feedback. Even if you can’t attend please post a comment and let me know where your interests lie.
