Southern BBQ

Last night I went out with Tony Davis of Simple Talk and Alan White, a longtime author for both here and Simple Talk. After satisfying their need for microbrewery beer, we ended up at a Southern BBQ. They enjoyed it, despite having to join me in choking down American beers.

We got to talk about a bunch of stuff, mostly non-technical, but it was interesting to hear their perspectives on the conferences. They definitely are enjoying the conference and getting some good development knowledge here at TechEd. There's definitely some, but I think this is more an infrastructure conference overall. Still it was interesting to hear them. They still like the PASS conference for DBAs with lots of networking opportunities and real world presentations.

They did think that Powershell is going to be here a long time and take off. I think it's pretty cool, but I've seen MS push lots of technologies, so I'm kind of adopting a wait-and-see attitude about Powershell. If you get the chance, check it out and see what you think There were definitely lots of Powershell sessions here covering all sorts of admin, Windows, SQL , Exchange, etc.
