My Soap Box

These events are a must attend for anyone who is serious about there careers in the SQL Server Community. They feature a full day of free training taught my some of the best in the industry. I have attended a number of these over the years. They are awesome.  My own talk is being co-presented by Jeff Szastak from VMware. One of the true experts on SQL Server within VMware.

Soap Box















Not only do you get some great tech talk you get to go to one of the greatest cities in the world. On top of that all the speakers are very approachable. I have made a number of good friends at these events over the years. I wish when I was active on the PASS board I had thought of this. I don’t know who did, but who ever did, it’s a truly awesome event.

If you had to pay for this training, it would be priceless. Yet the price of admission is giving up a Saturday.  A very fair tradeoff if you asked my opinion.  Look forward to seeing you there.

My presentation with Jeff Szastak will be on SQLServer and doing it right on VMware.
