The best emotion to describe how I’m feeling is ‘astounded’. I’m astounded that I’m in such august company to be speaking the SQLIntersection (#iSQL) conference. Read the blog post from my first SQL Server mentor, Kimberly Tripp, which tells you all about SQLintersection.

Read the list of SQL Server sessions here. On top of the list of outstanding sessions to attend, I’ll be giving a keynote on Tuesday afternoon. Witness:
So the only thing between the attendees and the booze in the reception hall is our keynote address?!? Oh yeah, that’s going to go down real smooth, isn’t it? I’ll last about as long as a puny henchman between James Bond and the villain of the movie. Sumeet Bansal, from Fusion-IO, will have to survive until the credits roll. We’ll be talking about high performance computing on SQL Server 2012 with an eye towards high availability, AlwaysOn, and Availability Groups.
If you’re in Las Vegas, I hope to see you there! If not, you should consider coming to this excellent conference.
