About two weeks ago, I wrote about SQL Server Podcasts and why I love that medium so much.
Today, I want to talk about the various video sources for SQL Server (luckily for us, there are lots of them).
The video medium is great because you can view sessions from the top speakers in the world without leaving your chair. If you feel you don’t need an eye contact with a specific session, you can upload it to your phone/USB drive/CD and listen in your car or any other place, just like a Podcast.
For the sake of order, I will make an artificial distinction between the sources. The categories will be conferences, Pass virtual chapters, Webcasts, other free sources and pay sites.
TechEd – All of the sessions are available
SQLBits – Sessions from the free days are available
Pass Summit – The 2010 and older summits are available for free. The 2011 summit is available only for attendees
Pass Virtual Chapters
24 Hours Of Pass (not actually a Virtual Chapter, but still a Pass source)
Other Free Sources
Quest Software YouTube Channel – Some older fun videos, mostly by Brent Ozar and Kevin Kline
MSBI Academy – A site dedicated to the Microsoft BI technologies
All the links can also be found on my recommended resources page, where you can also find my favorite Podcasts and Blogs.
