April #SQLChat – “Migrating SQL Server"

by Mar 17, 2016

Did you know SQL Server 2005 falls out of service April 12? Join us for a Twitter Chat and you’ll be fully prepared for future Server migrations!

Our next #SQLChat will take place Tuesday, April 12 at 11 AM CT with Rie Irish (@IrishSQL).
Questions will revolve around planning for migrations, rolling upgrades, downtime, etc. This will be a great opportunity to share tips and lessons learned when migrating SQL Server.

This #SQLChat will allow members from the SQL community to discuss SQL Server’s biggest topics with IDERA product experts, and have a chance to win a giveaway prize.

This month’s giveaway prize will be the newly released Amazon Tap ($129.99 value). And, that’s not all! Three lucky #SQLChat participants will receive a box of IDERA Swag delivered to their doorstep.
