We Are Microsoft Charity Event 2009

I received notification a few days ago that I was selected again to participate in the We Are Microsoft charity event in Dallas.  For those not familiar, this event is intended to seek out and assist qualified charities whose technology needs exceed their budget for same.  Developers, DBAs, and designers come in from as far away as Arkansas to spend the weekend designing, coding, and consuming large amounts of caffeine and sugar.

I haven’t found out who my teammates are or which charity we will be representing, but I’m looking forward to jumping into this again.  There may still be spots available for volunteers - if you’re in Dallas the weekend of January 16th, you should come by.  If you’re attending, please give me a shout.

Tim, sounds fun, but too late for me to plan on attending. Need to announce these things sooner (and as I wear my PASS hat, post it to the event calendar page at sqlpass.org).

Interesting. This is the type of thing that user groups ought to do once a year as well.
