I'm a guest blogger again!
This trip is already several days old for me. I arrived in America on Friday, delivered two sessions at Portland SQL Saturday event, walked (on Sunday) the Portland Half Marathon as a sponsor of Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Team in Training program, delivered a full-day summit precon seminar on Monday, and was in PASS Board meetings yesterday. Finally we've reached Day 1, and I could use a weekend!
But it's now that things really kick off properly.
As I write this, Rushabh Mehta is on stage, talking about some of the numbers that apply to this summit. There are over attendees at the Summit this year, demonstrating the amazing reach that the PASS Summit has. And they also just talked about my involvement as an advisor in reaching the rest of the world better too. Every year, the Summit gets bigger, and PASS runs more events in more places. It's an exciting time to be part of this community.
Microsoft's Ted Kummert (Senior VP, Business Platform Division) is on stage now, and has announced that SQL Server Denali will officially be named SQL Server 2012.
