My #sqlpass 2011 Member Summit Schedule

The following is my tentative plans for the SQL PASS Member Summit this week.  I have listed scheduled sessions to attend but may switch or do something else. You never know what will be going down on the #sqlpass or #sqlfun hash tag on twitter.

Isn’t it awesome that the sessions are recorded and available for playback after the event? I will get the sessions on DVD and will be able to watch them later.
