Thank You, I'm Speaking At PASS SUMMIT!

I just wanted to say a Big Thank You to you Dear Reader, and everyone that voted for my session!  I've been selected to speak at the 2011 PASS Summit on Compression.  It is a topic that I have really loved speaking and learning about, I'll be blogging more about the topic as I sharpen up all of my material for a Deep Dive!  Here is the abstract from my submission.

Page and Row Compression are powerful new tools. Page & Row with SQL 2008 RTM, and Page & Row with Unicode Compression with SQL 2008 R2. We can turn it on, we can turn it off, but we want more! What are Access Methods and how in the SQL Engine do they affect Compression? What are the “Gotchas” of Page Compression? How does Compression differ in the way it treats Non-Leaf & Leaf Level pages? What additional functionality did we get in DBCC Page, DMV’s, Perfmon Counters, and Extended Events to support our usage of Compression? How do complex query plans affect Compression? Come find out!

When I found out I wanted to run up and down the halls high-fiving people!  Was one of the thing's on my SQL Bucket List that I wanted to do.  Truthfully I wanted to make it TO the Summit, as I've never been to one. So the Prep is beginning and I'm super excited!

Thinking about going!  You should, and if you register by June 30th you'll recieve $600 off the full price!  Go sign Up Here.

Once again I just want to say a Big Thank You!
