The (almost complete) schedule for the 2008 PASS conference is now available and there are some fantastic looking sessions.
Some of the highlights of the schedule (at least for me) are:
- Most of the SQLCAT sessions
- Corruption Survival Techniques (Paul Randal & Kimberly Tripp)
- Debugging the Memory of SQL Server 2008 (Bob Ward)
- SQL Server 2008: Deep Dive into Spatial Data Type and Indexing (Michael Rys)
The big news (not that it’s exactly news by now) is that I’m speaking at the summit this year. I’m presenting a session on how to write badly-performing queries. The session is late on Friday afternoon and is immediately followed (in the same room) by Adam Machanic and Peter DeBetta’s session on Antipatterns and Malpractices. Looks like a fun afternoon focused on how things shouldn’t be done.
