  • A couple of things come to mind:

    1. Alastair Aitchison (a.k.a. Tanoshimi) has two excellent books:

    a. Beginning Spatial with SQL Server 2008 (Apress)

    b. Pro Spatial with SQL Server 2012 (Apress)

    2. Bob Beauchemin, SQL Server MVP, has conducted numerous training courses in SQL Server spatial.  You may contact him at bobb@SQLskills.com.
