SSISIS or "Reverse Viking Invasion"

That’s “SQL Server Integration Services In Stockholm” of course – Sweden, here I come!

I’m in the process of putting the finishing touches on planning for a two-day “SSIS advanced topics” seminar in Stockholm, Sweden on October 11th and 12th for RBAM AB. I’ve never been to Sweden – although many of my favorite bands are from Sweden – so I’m awfully excited, and understandably so. The seminar will cover best practices, scripting and component development and other “advanced topics.” I’ll post more information here when I have it to share…

…but the strangest thing is that the thing that has me most excited is not the seminar, and not the opportunity to visit Sweden, but is instead the fact that I’ll be flying back to New York on the top deck of a 747. I’ve never flown in a 747 before at all, and for some reason the thought of flying in the upper deck in the front of the plane has me as giddy as a a schoolboy…

I built my career around SQL Server and Microsoft technologies for well over a decade before I joined Microsoft as an employee, and I plan on using this blog to share my personal experience and opinions. They may well be shaped by my experience on the SQL Server team, but they’re still mine, and not that of Microsoft, disclaimer, disclaimer, etc., etc..

    “although many of my favorite bands are from Sweden “are you finally coming out as an ABBA fan?

  2. ABBA, Amon Amarth, Tiamat, Lake of Tears, Diablo Swing Orchestra, Bathory, Dark Tranquility, Therion… you get the idea. Sweden has a very large number of great bands for a country its size – it must be all those long winter nights. 😉
