Off To The “Mothership”

Today I’m flying out to Seattle and then driving to Redmond to visit the Microsoft Head Office.

I’ve recently started a new contract with Microsoft’s Tier 1 ISV Team and this is my first opportunity to meet the team face to face.  This is also the first time I’m visiting the head office of Microsoft and I’m pretty pumped abou the whole thing.  I’ve dedicated more than a decade of my life to Microsoft SQL Server so it’s about time I go and visit the “mothership”. 

As I’ve mentioned on Twitter in some passing conversations my trip to Redmond this week and my vacation to the Dominican Republic the following week have combined to kibosh my PASS Summit plans for this year 🙁  It was just too much to squeeze in this time around. 

I’ll be looking to get my “conference fix” in spring I think at SQL Connections in Orlando March 27th – 30th.  How can you go wrong with a conference co-chaired by two of the elite of the elite SQL folks in the world (Paul Randal and Kimberly Tripp).  If my experience at SQL Connections in Spring is as good and memorable as my Summit experience last year then I’m going to be hitting 2 big conferences a year from now on I think. 

I hope everyone has a great time next week at the Summit and be sure to stop by Bush Gardens and have a Jagermeister for me 🙂
