My Trip to Microsoft: Day 4

Last night we left the lab earlier than ever:  8:45!  We had dinner at Red Robin (again) and consumed sufficient quantities of beer.  Good times were had by all, and many jokes were considered far funnier than they actually were.

This morning we met with Sunil Agrawal, one of the geniuses behind the storage engine in SQL Server.  He is hands down one of the most intelligent people I’ve ever had the pleasure of speaking with.  His knowledge and passion for what he does is quite inspirational.  He talked to us about the complex issues of Read-Committed Snapshot Isolation in SQL Server and made it sound so simple and obvious.  If you’re interested in this subject, or any other SQL Server related info, his blog is located here.

My boss gave a 40ish minute talk on our company, what we do, how we use technology, etc.  It was well done and reflected great on the company.  Go David!

This afternoon we got beer in the lab.  Lots of it.  Unfortunately, I just took a large dose of Sudafed to fend off my sinus infection.  Blast it all. 

 Now we are off to eat dinner somewhere fancy that I’m not currently sure the name of.  Details to come tomorrow!
