Throughout the past year, I've had the opportunity to work with Mike Hotek first at a client site and then later on when he spoke at the OKC SQL Server Developers Group for several meetings. He is one of the most knowledgeable SQL Server experts that I have personally met. Even more, he has been very supportive of several local SQL Server groups, including the OKC SQL Server Developers Group.
One very gracious offer that he put forward was the willingness to provide free SQL Server training in the evenings, if someone would provide the location. Back in July 2009, Integris hosted a free two evening SSRS 2008 class.
This February the OU Health Sciences Center has been very gracious to provide space for 40 people to take a FREE Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Certification Boot Camp 70-433 class taught by Mike Hotek. Mike used to teach these classes for $4,000 per student. He now teaches them for very nominal fees or for free.
Today, we opened registration for this class that begins Monday, February 8, 2010. Registration is open at http://sqlbootcamp.eventbrite.com/.
We opened registration at noon CST and I've literally been watching tickets nearly sell out before my eyes. As of this posting there are 11, wait another one just went, 10 free tickets left. If you're interested in this class, register quickly!
Update (02-Feb-2010): This class sold out in less than 20 hours! We look forward to a great class next week!
