SQL PASS Summit 2011: Session FilesThis past week was the SQL PASS Summit 2011 in Seattle, WA. I presented three sessions (regular session, lightning talk, panel discussion) plus ran a focus group on advanced certification and hosted a Birds of a Feather lunch table on disaster recovery. It was a busy, busy week. Below are the slide decks and demo files for the three presentations I made. All of these files have been uploaded to the SQL PASS Summit site as well (though I can’t figure out how you would download them from there).
The MCM panel session has additional files from the other presenters — Cindy Gross (blog|@SQLCindy), Pam Lahoud (@SQLGoddess), and Jimmy May (blog|@AspiringGeek) — that should be on the SQL PASS Summit website. I will include links to the other presenters’ blogs if they post their demos. Cindy Gross’s demos are already linked below.
