Looks like I may be speaking at Tech Ed 2005 in Orlando, FL. They have not contacted me yet about travel plans, and I am not willing to say whether its definitely happened until someone has forked out money for a plane ticket. So for now I'll just say I may be speaking. Though they seem pretty sure otherwise.
But I will go out on a limb and talk about the sessions now, for those who might be interested....
Databases for the World: Designing Multilingual Databases Using SQL Server 2005
Track(s): Database Development
Yukon introduces new and enhanced international features such as those that are important to customers in East Asia - like the handling of supplementary characters (which has not been the case in prior versions). This session highlights the new features and provide code samples and best practices to exploit them.
Databases for the World: Optimizing Search in Multilingual Data Sets Using SQL Server Collation for Sorting and Indexing
Track(s): Database Administration
Many SQL customers have poor understanding of how collation (sorting/indexing) works in multilingual databases and what the best practices are for searching multilingual data sets. This is an opportunity to learn the in's and out's of multilingual data set searching.
The titles/abstracts were not mine (honestly, do they sound like me? <grin>), but the sessions will be 100% me. And they will both be way cooler than the .NET Developers Association database talk I did last August since I will be able to say so much more about Yukon here than I was almost a year prior....
And there are people down in that part of the country who were wanting to find a means to send me briefcases full of money to talk about/train on these very topics in a consulting deal who can get the expertise at bargain prices if they show up for TechEd, which does not require the money in cash (small, non-sequential bills only, please!) the way I might have! :-)
