The PASS Summit Schedule Builder is live, and I’ve spent the morning looking over all of the great sessions they have lined up. I always find putting together a schedule challenging – it’s hard to balance my time between the sessions that I want to attend, the sessions I should attend for career growth, and spending time in the Dev Pods / Ask the Experts and the SSIS booth in the Microsoft Pavilion. I usually end up triple booked for the entire week.
I’ll be presenting two sessions – A Day of SSIS in the Enterprise is a pre-con session on Monday, and a breakout session on Thursday – Top 10 Things You Didn’t Know About SSIS in SQL Server Code Name "Denali", where we’ll be announcing some brand new features for Denali (as well as covering some existing CTP3 features that haven’t gotten much attention thus far).
Here is a full list of the SSIS sessions at the summit (note that the schedule may change – refer to the official PASS listings for times and rooms):
10/10 – Monday (pre-conference)
10/12 – Wednesday
- 10:15am – [BIA-100] ETL Smackdown: PowerShell vs. SSIS — with Aaron Nelson

In addition to the sessions, I always look forward to speaking with the vendors that develop SSIS components and enhanced functionality.
- CozyRoc will be attending the event and showing off their ever growing list of SSIS extensions.
- Pragmatic Works will apparently be announcing new products and functionality for their suite of products.
- Varigence announced that they’ll be running a contest at PASS that looks interesting…
Be sure to stop by their booths and say hello!
