PASS Community Summit 2008: CSS Agenda

The SQL Server First Aid Station

Is your SQL Server sick? Got a cold? Or just broken? The Microsoft Customer Service and Support (CSS) experts at this station can get your SQL Server back to health—or at least put a bandage on it. The CSS team will have their experts on hand to talk to you about some of your more interesting problems and provide you with direction and guidance to get you on the right path back to a healthy SQL Server. We may not perform emergency surgery here, but we can get your SQL Server through the conference and pointed in the right direction.

We will be located in Room 620 and will be open from 10:15 AM – 6:30 PM on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, November 19-21, 2008.
