Who's Your Hero?

Hi mom![1]

Although 2007 was an amazing year for me, 2008 is already shaping up to be even more interesting and exciting year than the one we've just finished. I'm already scheduled to speak at the Microsoft MCT Summit events in Berlin (my goodness - that's just next week!) and Redmond, and at the SQL Connections conference in Orlando. And now I've been invited to speak at the local SQL Server 2008 launch event here in Syracuse. The Heroes {Community} Launch[2] is a worldwide series of local launch events being delivered by community technical champions and user groups. I always love presenting to local audiences (that whole "not traveling" thing is a big plus) and being involved in this massive product launch should be lots of fun. So plan on being at the CNY Developers user group meeting on March 12th.

And no matter which launch event you attend, you should make sure that you keep your eyes open and pay attention to the print materials and the video screens. You never know - you might just see your favorite SSIS blogger, wearing his favorite Manowar "Sign of the Hammer" t-shirt... ;-)

[1] I recently learned that my mother reads my blog. I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing, but it makes me smile whenever I think about it anyway.
[2] Yes, Microsoft is really using those {curly braces} in all of their launch material. My guess is that some insightful marketing person thought it looked more technical. Don't even get me started on my theory of where the ".NET" brand came from...
