Registration for SQLBits V, which will be taking place on November 19th/20th/21st in Newport in Wales, is now open. As always, full details and information on how to register are on the site:

Friday the 20th is a new departure for us: a multi-track day similar to the traditional SQLBits event, but with a distinct theme of 2008 and R2, and hand-picked speakers.

Full details are here:
Saturday the 21st is the regular SQLBits, free-to-attend community day. You can register here:
