The first week was the Immersion Event for Developers, followed by the Immersion Event on Security, PowerShell, and Development Support.
On both Thursdays, I participated in the open presentation evening. In Week 1, Kenneth Urena (blog | twitter) and I compared two recovery scenarios, then had the audience guess which one was the real deal, and which one was the dress-rehearsal.
In Week 2, I re-introduced my SQL Server 2000 Duplicate Index Finder, and thanks to some fortuitous timing, was able to introduce a workaround in the script for a known issue, before presenting on it.
Both weeks also had some great presentations from other classmates (in IE1, IE3, and our own classes), and I learnt a lot and met some wonderful people, too many to mention here (though Jason did have an excellent singing voice).
A special shout-out to Andy Yun, who helped us make great food choices.
Thanks also to everyone who made me comfortable with my broken foot. I even had Kimberly lend me her knee scooter (it’s a real thing, I promise), which made getting around much easier.
