    17.30 -> 18.00 networking - coffee
    A chance to meet other SQL Server professionals on a social level, what better way of networking and finding out what other people are doing in the SQL Server space.

    Get your problems solved! If you have a problem re: SQL Server or need advice on some aspect, eg. SAN's, Clustering, Transact SQL, DTS etc... then this is a really good way of getting answers from a broad range of highly experienced people who attend the meetings.

    18.30 -> 19.15 Error Handling in SQL Server (Jacco Schalkwijk, SQL Server MVP)
    Errors in SQL Server 2000 are sometimes not well defined and exception handling is primitive compared with some other languages. This talk demonstrates the sometimes unexpected behaviour of errors in SQL Server and suggests best practices to properly handle them.

    19.15 -> 19.30 Break

    19.30 -> 20.00 Embarcadero Extreme Test presentation (Paul Down, Embarcadero).

    20.00 -> 20.45 Exploring SQL Data Structures with DBCC PAGE (Eric Allsop, USwitch)
    Understanding the underlying data structures that SQL Server uses can help developers better design structures and improve IO performance. In this session we will examine the basic data pages, indexes, the IAMs, GAMs and SGAMs. We will use DBCC PAGE to examine what is actually stored on these structures.

    ,.... more I'm interested in the session 20.00 hours about data structures....
