Walter,

 

Thanks for the info.  I plan on hitting the ground running.  I have a Pre-Con lecture from 9am to 5pm on Sunday, but there are other things going on that I would like to get involved with that day as well (labs, etc).  I plan to arrive on Friday or Saturday to orient myself before the events begin.  The Pre-Con I am after is 0 to DAX (I'm working on some BI reports), but that hacker one for sys admins is looking pretty good!  Do you know if there will be a chance to do registration stuff before the Pre-Con sessions on Sunday? I hope the Pre-Con stuff is available on-line as well.
