Very cool article, Steve. When you get that much brain-power, skill, and experience together all in one place, you can't help but learn something new and important even if you just walk down the hallways. Nicely done.

BTW... I've submitted two abstracts as a possible speaker for the 2010 summit and I'm working on a third. I didn't make reservations like I wanted to last week but I'm working on them now.

First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
If you think its expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur. -- Red Adair

There are a couple more take-aways from the conference that I like.
1) You have the opportunity to learn from peers and not just the presenters. The classes have a schedule but the discussions may bleed over into the hallways, meal time, and other events that are happening.

2) Networking.

I may have to make my way into one of your sessions then. Hope you get a slot.

I will look out for Jeff's sessions this time..I attended my first summit in 1999 by taking a loan since O could not afford it and my company was not willing to pay, was an accidental DBA back then. The summit inspired me to start a local chapter and since then have not looked back.

I get to go to my first Summit this year - had to negotiate it as part of a counter offer. Its good for both parties. I am looking forward to the Session abstracts coming out to start planning.

Where is the best spot to stay near the Summit? If possible I will stay in the hotel right there, but you never know about companies and the bean counters.

Will see you at the SSC party Steve - I am going to need someone to teach me to gamble since I spend my free time on the water or in the woods Smile

Ha, I don't gamble! Went to a casino in New Orleans at Tech Ed, watched a friend lose a few hundred. Looks easy, can't bring myself to drop $5 there. Happy to pay for beers and watch. Plus I typically don't have time to gamble at the party. If my wife comes this year, I might try to find time.

In terms of the hotels, downtown Seattle is fairly small. I think all the Summit hotels are easy walking distance. I usually stay in the Sheraton for the 35th floor workout room and it's next door to the Summit. I think the Westin is the furthest, about 5 blocks away. I did stay in the Roosevelt or Renaissance one year and it was cheaper.

Thanks - I am in good with our secretary ( vegetables from the garden for bribery) and she runs the show on bookings - the hotel at the Summit would seem the likely choice.

Let me know if you need a volunteer for the party - I am coming alone and will "know" zero people so volunteering would a nice way to help out and meet some people.

The party runs itself for the most part, and I press a few RG people into service for volunteers. Come enjoy, gamble, say hi to a few people. It will be fun!
