SQL Server Training - What's new?

In the old thread ( http://www.sqlservercentral.com/Forums/Topic998521-1550-1.aspx) there was a discussion on where the best advanced classroom training was. SQLskills and SolidQ are still looking good today. But is there anything new that is comparable with above? Location does not matter, just want to know about the best advanced classroom training (no MOC classes or comparable). Best online training?

SQLSkills is still #1 in my opinion. You're getting training from Paul Randal, Kimberly Tripp, Joe Sack and Jonathan Kehayias. You'd be very hard pressed to find a better collection of people (plus they also bring in Glen Barry, Erin Stellato and others, amazing). If you are into learning about data warehousing and SSIS, then PragmaticWorks puts on excellent sessions. Within the SSIS sphere they're more or less on equal terms with SQLSkills on SQL Server internals.

I agree about SQlSkills, can't find anything better out there right now. Did not know about PragmaticWorks, will have a look at that. Thanks!

By the way, Brent Ozar Unlimited are about to start with classroom training in the US. Might develop into serious contender for the #1 spot in my book, if they bring it to Europe.

Yeah, Brent & Co. are all very good as well. I'll bet they focus on different areas than Paul & Kim rather than attempt a direct head-to-head.
