I’m giving away one copy at each preso of SQL matriarch Kalen Delaney et al’s latest-&-greatest hot-off-the-presses opus:
Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Internals

I was originally asked to speak last summer. Linking my nascent passion for skiing with the timing resulted in a low latency response of something like, ‘Hey, let’s do this in six months, eh?’. I followed up with Mike at the 2013 PASS Summit & along with Erik we carved the dates in stone. I’m Denver-bound as I type this & am extremely eager to combine my passion for skiing along with my eagerness to evangelize one of the many new! &/or improved! features that SQL Server has to offer. I’ll provide an update on both my experience on the slopes & with the groups.
In the meantime, as I write this, I’m looking out over the slopes of Vail being greeted by the winter’s dawn.
It’s going to be a great day—& a great week! I hope you can join us!
