I just got all of my travel arrangements set up for PASS in Seattle. I'm excited to get a chance to go to PASS again. A good number of the product team will be manning various booths, ask the experts sessions, and panels. I'll be working 1-2 ask the experts sessions on queries, query optimization, and whatever else you want to throw at me. I should be there all three days.
You may not know this, but the product group sends a lot of people to PASS partially so that we can learn about how customers are using the product in the field. This helps us identify places where we can invest in the future. So, if some of the product group ask you questions about how you use a certain feature, command, etc, please tell them about your application! It is extremely useful to the development team as a whole.
I hope to see you there!
