I know that this is not a lot of notice, but if you’re in Redmond for the MCT Summit event, I will be delivering a bonus SQL Server Integration Services “Deep Dive” session at the end of the day in Salon 3/4. This is the same room where my final scheduled session will be held, so if you’re attending the “New Features in SQL Server 2008 for Database Developers” session, you’ll already be in the correct room.
Please be warned that we’ll probably overlap with the scheduled bowling trip (which really doesn’t appeal to me) and the attendant open bar that Microsoft is going to provide (which does appeal) so there is a trade-off to be made. I’m more than happy to pass on the open bar (especially since each attendee at this bonus session will need to buy me a drink in payment 😉 but potential attendees should take this into account.
What’s the agenda? It will (hopefully – I don’t have any slides, so I may well forget) look something like this:
- Package development best practices
- Package deployment
- Design patterns and suggestions
- Real-world package demos and walkthroughs
- Q&A – hopefully we’ll have a TON of interaction, and the Q&A session will last a long time
Hopefully I’ll see you there!
