Convergence 2008 - Orlando

It's Friday finally! I haven't posted anything about Convergence, but better late than never. I will be at Convergence for anyone who is interested in meeting while I'm there. To help facilitate this, I have setup a Convergence Connect profile. While a portion of my time will be working at the technical services area of Convergence, I'll have other time to attend sessions and socialize as well.

My main focus at Convergence is SQL Performance and PerformancePoint Server. Those are the two areas I'm hoping to make great strides in by mid-2008.

While I have had many emails and comments asking about the results of the poll I was attempting to take on AIF usage, I have never received any responses on usage. I'm not sure if this was due to not having time or literally no one who reads my blog using it, but if you're of the earlier persuasion, please come by and talk to me for a few minutes. I'd really love to hear your success stories or otherwise in AIF.

Look forward to seeing everyone there.

Do and Don't Lists

As an added service to you the developer or administrator, I have created two lists named "Do" and "Don't", respectively. This is a quick hit list of things that you should at bare minimum entertain the idea of researching the possibility of implementing or definitely not doing at all.

You will see these lists in the right margin at the end of the 'widgets'. If you have a personal lesson learned that you think should be in the list, please send me an email.
