PASS Summit 2011 – Birds of a Feather!

Howdy! The 2011 SQL PASS Summit is fast approaching. I’m happy to have been able to volunteer to help do some coordination of the Birds of a Feather lunch again this year (2010, 2009 topics). I am even more happy to announce the table hosts and table topics.

Going to the Summit? Well then check out a BoF table for lunch on the Friday. The concept is simple (and it isn’t mine… I was just the one who did the coordination, can’t take credit for bringing the idea to PASS or even choosing the table topics – though I do enjoy helping folks come up with topics if they are stuck 😉 ) – You pick a table topic you are interested in or want to learn more about. A SQL Server MVP, SQL Server MCM or Microosft SQL Server CAT team member hosts that table. They chose the topic because they are interested in it and want to chat with you about it.

It is a great way to build contacts, learn more about something you are interested in or want to learn about and have some fun at lunch with others. So I hope to see you at one of the tables. I haven’t picked which one I’ll be sitting at (or I may just walk around and enjoy overhearing the conversations at the tables). See you there!
