I enjoyed the presentation immensely.  As a first time attendee to any "precon", I was a little bit uncertain about one thing:  "should I bring my laptop?"  It was unclear if computers would be provided so I did bring my work laptop (which I felt appropriate as this precon was paid for by work and there was an off-chance I might need to be called in so I had it on hand just in case).  I almost didn't bring any and I feel I'd have lost a little bit had I not.  I was running SSIS 2008 and got to see that 95% of what was shown/demo'ed was applicable in the older version (we're upgrading soon, but until then...).  

I just wanted to point out that a note along the lines of "Laptops/Computers are not provided for attendees, but not required.  If bringing a laptop, be advised that wi-fi access may be provided, but not guaranteed.  It would be best if you wish to perform some of the exercises on your own machine as the instructor does them, that you have the software already installed on your machine (Express versions can be found <here>.)"
