SQL University

Jorge Segarra is onto something pretty cool. Head on over to SQL University and check it out. I’m going to run through it myself in the coming weeks because everyone should be trying to polish up on the SQL.

24 hours of free SQL training

From the site:
24 Hours of PASS is a series of live one-hour webcasts broadcast over a 24-hour period that focus on a host of SQL Server topics. The 24 one-hour presentations will begin at 00:00 GMT (UTC) on September 2, 2009

Be sure to take into account the whole GMT issue. Since I’m on Central Standard Time it would start for me at 7:00 pm on September 1. I haven’t seen whether or not they will archive the sessions but I hope they do.

Learn SQL on your bike

I’m really going to have to check into this one.  Aaron Alton has a neat idea that might help you retain all that SQL Syntax while you’re studying. All I have is a treadmill so that should be interesting.

Ebooks, Twitter, and Contacts

I was checking out a new contact I made on Twitter, which I was convinced I should use by Brent Ozar, and Marlon’s post on a free eBook made me think back to some other great finds that I’ve seen on Red Gate. If someone thinks of any others please feel free to post.

Best of SQLServerCentral.com, Vol. 1

Best of SQLServerCentral.com Vol. 5 and 6
You can also download 3 good ebooks from Brad @ Red Gate.. Brad’s Sure Guide to SQL Server 2008, Brad McGehee’s DBA Best Practices, How to Become an Exceptional DBA.

“Dissecting SQL Server Execution Plans”
by Grant Fritchey

I’m sure I”m missing some links that I had, but I’ll update if I find them. I hope noone at Red Gate has a problem with me posting them like that because they should drive people to try the products.
