We managed to bring together the entire author team for the SSIS Design Patterns book to run a pre-conference event at the 2012 PASS Summit. I posted about this when it was first announced, but since our book came out today, I thought it would be a good time to post a reminder.
We’ve been meeting over the last couple of weeks, trying to decide on what content to include in the session. It’s a lot harder than I thought it would be – there is just so much we could talk about. We have all of that content from the book, of course, and there’s always the desire to include brand new material as well. On top of that, we could draw on content from the pre-con that Andy, Tim and I did last year, the Performance Design Patterns talks I put together, Andy’s framework courses, Tim’s upcoming Real World SSIS session (SQL Saturday 163), and the great stuff from Jessica and Michelle’s blogs… You see our dilemma. I have a feeling the eight hour session is going to fly by.
I’ve always felt that having too much content is better than not having enough, and that is definitely the case here. I think the audience will be happy with what we select, though, and we’ll make sure that the topics that didn’t make the cut will be available online (in one form or another).
The event will take place on Monday, November 5th, 2012. If you’d like to join us for the day, you can register here.
