In addition to the great sessions, checkout the new & improved SQL Server First-Aid Clinic!  This year’s Clinic boasts *both* the Microsoft Customer Service & Support team (CSS) but also the Microsoft SQL Customer Advisory Team (SQLCAT).  CSS will help you troubleshoot your database issues, and SQLCAT will answer your data-tier app design/database architecture questions.  No question is too big or small…enjoy this *free consulting service* from Microsoft!!
