I just received an email message from the PASS Global Summit 2012 organizers after submitting session abstracts a few weeks ago. They told me not to make any public announcements about the information they sent me but they also gave me this cool button graphic. Hmmm… I wonder what this means!
More information to come when the time is right.
PASS is the Professional Association for SQL Server
The global summit is the largest gathering of the SQL Server community and the premier event for learning and knowledge sharing from the amazing SQL Server community, Microsoft SQL Server product teams, MVPs, book authors and partners. This is an awesome event and a very special community of professionals and industry experts.
Just go. If you do, you’ll be glad you did and if you don’t, you’ll wish you had. trust me.
I am proud to announce that our Professional SQL Server 2012 Reporting Services book is finally in print and generally available. This 865 page book took about 14 months to write and was completed about six weeks ago. Paperback and electronic editions are available from Wrox.com, Amazon & other resellers.
My esteemed co-authors were Robert Bruckner from the SSRS product team, Grant Paisley, Thiago Silva and Ken Withee; who all did fantastic work.
Thanks go to Joe Salvatore, Chris Albrektson and Nigel Sammy who did a great job as a technical reviewers.
