Day 1 of PASS

Day 1 of the PASS Community Summit 2009 was a great day; lots of fun and good information.

Thanks for everyone who attended my Birds-of-a-Feather table during lunch. Feel free to shoot me an email to stay in touch.

And a big thanks to everyone who came to my “Enhance Your T-SQL for Better Performance” session yesterday afternoon. The demo code will be available on the PASS Summit site and my blog site in the next day or two. Stay tuned.
