PASS 2008 – Day 2 Recapped

Published On: 2008-11-21By:

Today was another excellent day here at PASS 2008 in rainy Seattle, WA.

The keynote showed some interesting uses of SQL, SharePoint, and Performance Point querying a 1+ TB data SSAS database in a second or two.

Bob Ward gave his usual excellent presentation on debugging the memory of SQL Server. I was a bit late to the session, and I had to leave a little before he finished, but he did go way over the time allotted, with so much information to present it’s not much of a suprise.

Hugo Kornelis gave a very interesting presentation on Cursors or Set based processing. Hugo gave an excellent solution to Dennis Gobo’s prime number challenge from a while ago, along with the classic box packing problem.

I got some pictures to share from the SQL Server Hero’s party tonight (click to enlarge).

Won’t Tom’s wife be proud. He has informed us that the “tramp-stamp” made him feel more powerful.
