Day 1 done at the SQL PASS Summit 2012!! …. It was a packed day with some interesting events starting with the Keynote session. I spent most of my day at the SQL Server Clinic meeting customers and discussing their work with SQL Server and helping them with suggestions and answers to the questions they had regarding the product. Most of all, I enjoyed meeting all the friends that I made on Twitter in person. It is always good to connect a face to a virtual name that you interact with.
Day 2 will be much more interesting as I will be part of the official launch of the book, Professional SQL Server 2012 Internals and Troubleshooting, that I have co-authored with Christian Bolton, James Rowland Jones, Glenn Berry, Justin Langford and Gavin Payne.
You will still find me at the SQL Server Clinic or have me loitering about near Exhibition Hall 4. In case you still can’t locate me, send a tweet across my way (@banerjeeamit). In partnership with SQL Sentry at the exhibitors stand from 12:30 on Thursday 8th November the authors will be available for a book signing event which will give you the chance to meet and greet the authors and contributors. This book is truly a great example of collaboration and community power where the authors have interacted over email for months but have met each other only once. And for some, this summit is their first face-to-face meeting!
SQL Sentry also have lots and lots of copies to give away for free so be sure to drop by their stand and ask about it! The book is also available at the PASS bookstore for sale. So if you want one, head out there and grab a copy.
You can also order it from your favorite online retailer:
