First Session

, 2007-06-04

I dropped into Brian Knight's "Clustering in 60 Minutes" to say hi. If

you've never seen this, it's pretty cool and worth the watch. Brian

makes clustering look pretty easy, and he really sets up a cluster in

the session from scratch, so check it out. It's updated for 2005, but

I've seen it, so heading to the SQL IO Demystified session.

And I can't report on it. There are at least 15 people standing outside

trying to listen in to this "informal talk" with the room packed and

people sitting all over the floors. Can't really hear, so I talk to the

people from PASS and say to to a few Microsoft developers I've met over

the years.

Speaking at Community Events - More Thoughts

Last week I posted Speaking at Community Events - Time to Raise the Bar?, a first cut at talking about to what degree we should require experience for speakers at events like SQLSaturday as well as when it might be appropriate to add additional focus/limitations on the presentations that are accepted. I've got a few more thoughts on the topic this week, and I look forward to your comments.
