SQLskills at PASS and Connections in October

The Fall conferences are a little earlier this year – October rather than November – and we'll be at both PASS and SQL Connections.

We hope to see you there!

PASS Summit

This year's PASS Summit is in Seattle again from October 11-14 – see here for registration details.
