“Flying the flag..”

It’s hat tips all around this week for our UK SQL Server community speakers who will be proudly flying the flag at the upcoming PASS Summit.

With our UK speaker talent in demand all the way across the pond, it should be clear that the PASS Summit is the Super Bowl of SQL Server events and one that you should do all you can to attend. Congratulations folks!
