Redgate - SQL In The City

Attended Redgate's SQL in the City last week in London for the second year running. Always worth a visit although it was more sales focused this year with a distinct lack of other vendors. A sign of the times I expect.
Quite a few of the sales pitches, ahem.. I mean informed lectures were discussing what is a nice GUI for what already exists, if you know where to look or you have taken the time to find out. Always good though to listen in to the guys (and girls) from SQLServerCentral (Steve Jones, Grant Finchley, Gail Shaw, etc.) as there is always a few golden nuggets of information that I have not heard or missed and they do seem to take time to speak to you if you are inclined to do so.
Well worth a visit for anyone who works with databases or is in charge of delivering solutions, if they are coming to a town near you.
