T-27 Days Until My Summit Adventure Begins

The DATEDIFF script tells me it is now 27 days until I leave for the SQL PASS Summit 2012.   Today I have built my tentative schedule (as shown below) and this was probably the most difficult task I will ever have to do this year.  Trying to balance the sessions I need that will aid my current position in addition to what I would like to know and let’s not forget the people with whom I want to see speak.  Thankfully, I purchased the DVDs to cover all of those lost sessions.

I will go over the schedule again in a few weeks as I understand it is evolving.  However, I am curious, with shifting time slots if my calendar will adjust to the session or simply make me believe that I am attending a session that is no longer in that time slot.  Another thing I would like to point out is that I loaded all of these sessions into my outlook calendar and then I realized ‘hey that calendar is on eastern standard time!’  So I edited these sessions in my phone to reflect a pacific time zone so that hopefully when I arrive in Seattle everything will be correct.  I am making a mental note to review my schedule on Sunday when I arrive.

Stay tuned for this excellent adventure!
