Free SQL Server Training Videos

We speak at SQL Server user groups and live events, and we record presentations and post them here whenever possible.

Every Tuesday at 11:30AM Central, we run a free webcast covering SQL Server, virtualization, storage, and more. If you can attend live and ask questions, that’s great!  You can register for our upcoming webcasts, and add a recurring calendar reminder so you can make it each week. If you have to miss a webcast, we post recordings to the blog each week.
