Birds of a Feather Lunch at PASS 2010 Summit

The volunteers at PASS (especially Mike Walsh) have organized another “Birds of a Feather” lunch event on Tuesday, November 9 at the PASS Summit this year. This event is simply an opportunity to sit with a group of like-minded people at a table during lunch, hosted by someone who is probably an MVP, speaker, author, or perhaps all three. It is an opportunity to ask questions and share experiences about a particular topic relating to SQL Server or Professional Development, in a casual, low-pressure atmosphere.

Here is the list of hosts and topics for this year’s event:
