For the first time this year, the Professional Association for SQL Server will be broadcasting the PASS Summit keynote live on the web!
Each day of the Summit, Microsoft staff will open up the day with their keynote speeches:
- Tuesday – Ted Kummert will be talking about Microsoft’s commitment to mission critical applications and easier business intelligence. Given that the other two keynotes mention the next version of SQL Server, I bet Ted will also cover it here, meaning this will be your first look at vNext.
- Wednesday – Quentin Clark will be showcasing the next version of SQL Server, including “powerful features for data developers and a unified database development experience” – every time he says DAC Pack, you have to take a shot of espresso.
- Thursday – David DeWitt will cover query optimization and better execution plans in future versions of SQL Server
And it’s frrrrrreeee. Register now to watch the keynote live on November 9th. I’ll also be liveblogging it with my own trademarked irreverent take on the announcements. And maybe some Lady Gaga pictures. No promises, though.
