Excellent Event. Great Venue, Thanks to Research Machines and to Chris, Tony and Barry for getting NxtGenUG Oxford off to a great start!
John Price
A good start to a new region. Minor teething troubles, beyond our control seem to have annoyed a few people. We'll get those sorted though.
Paul Milburn
Tony R is tops... he opens the door to some excellent techniques... e.g. I'd never considered using the FOR XML for anything other than getting data in or out of SPs before.

I enjoyed the presentations and the informal atmosphere of the event, but I expected the content to be focused on technologies and solutions that are more cutting edge. Definitely worthwhile though and hopefully there will be more non-RMers and more on-time pizza next time. Oh, and I would have appreciated some better goodies - not a free pen in sight ...!
Tariq Razzaq
Excellent nugget; give me the taste of what is possible and I will go ahead and try it out.
Chris Brook
Really good content, just wish he'd had more time to talk!
Tim Hundy
Lots of great tips and insites here. I liked the demos and hope to snaffle them from Tony's blog at some later date! The aside at the end about surrogate keys was also interesting
Gary Walker
Well done. Really minor whinge - Wait for the pizza slightly frustrating - but not the organisers' fault.Handy that it was held at RM - where I work!
Gary Walker
Well presented, clearly explained. Useful to have the run through of the process: superficially from the docs do a fairly using the providers looks more daunting, nice to see the basic method is so simple versus the 1.1 way.
David Oliver
Barry is always good value and the little nugget is a good way to start the session.
