PASS Summit 2012–Day 1

Morning

Could not sleep past 4:30AM this morning, daylight savings time and 2 time zone changes did not help. So, exercise now in the morning and off to Summit for 7:30AM.

Meet 2 new Summit attendees in the elevator from Los Angles working for Stamps.com. They were both developers of web services for the shipping industry. They were heading to Louis Davidson’s (@DrSQL) Relations Database pre-con. Encouraged them to network and get as much from after hours networking as the sessions.

I am attending Rod Colledge pre-con on BI Dashboards. Rod did a session during 24-Hours of PASS that I was able to host and I am excited to learn for a pro. The room is starting to fill up at 7:25AM and an attendee from SQL Saturday in Baton Rouge and Houston is sitting next to me. He has some interesting things to say about SAP and Data Warehousing
