This afternoon, I attended a briefing for TechEd North America 2008 presenters and staff, and yesterday I got my booth schedule for the event.  I've got my Hands-On Lab for SQL Tricks finished, and I was happily surprised to hear earlier this week that pre-conference interest in the session has led it to be chosen as one of just ten Instructor-Led Labs at the event.

It's going to be a busy and educational week, and it's only two and a half weeks away!

If you want to catch me at TechEd, your best bet is probably to come to the OLTP Demo Machine booth Tuesday through Friday between 11:45am and 2:45pm.  I'll be there along with Louis Davidson, Jason Follas, Don Kiely, Greg Low, Jason Massie, and Michael Wang.  I'll also hang out as long as I can after my presentations, but those moments tend to be both crowded and crazed as the room turns over for the next presentation.

I'm starting to get seriously psyched about this event, and I hope to see many of you there!
