The SQL Monitor team returned from the SQL PASS Summit today, bearing the much anticipated Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and a bunch of photographs that betray their much lauded work ethic.
There is a huge amount of preparation and setting up that goes into an event like SQL PASS, so they claim, and clearly the Red Gate team pulled together and showed the value of teamwork:
It was real ‘heads-down’ work in the exhibit hall apparently, even before the Summit opens, making sure the equipment is untangled and set up to demo SQL Monitor to the crowds. Then for 8 hours each day during the 4 days of the summit, the software was shown to a constant stream of DBAs.
Tiring work, but there are always distractions:

Congratulations to the SQL Monitor prizewinners and thanks to everyone that came to talk to us, we look forward to seeing you again next year…
