The "Get Ready for SQL Server 2005" roadshow, brought to you by SQL Server Magazine, Microsoft, and the Professional Association for SQL Server (PASS), will visit seven cities across the United States beginning April 19 in Boston. The $99 fee for show attendance includes a 1-year membership to PASS, a 1-year subscription to SQL Server Magazine, breakfast and lunch, and admission to the PASS user-group party at the end of the day. PASS has also announced it will offer every roadshow attendee a $100 discount to its fall PASS Summit in Dallas. "These 1-day events are the best 'quick-start' opportunity available for SQL Server users to get a jumpstart on migrating to SQL Server 2005," explained Kevin Kline, PASS President and SQL Server MVP. "By providing users with the very best education and outstanding local networking outlets, the roadshows help strengthen the SQL Server community and facilitate the information sharing that helps us all do our jobs better." The roadshow will travel to Boston (April 19), New York (April 21), Anaheim (April 26), San Francisco (April 28), Chicago (May 12), Houston (May 17), and Dallas (May 19).
