Selected to speak at ConFoo Montreal March 9-11 2011

Wow, I just learn that I will be presenting two sessions at ConFoo Montreal  (March 9-11,2011)

This event is PHP oriented but for the past 2 years ConFoo added sessions about SQL Server and .Net. The sessions I will be presenting are:

What new in Reporting Service R2

What is MS Sync. Framework

It will be interesting to see how PHP developers react to the Sync FW and the SSRS R2. I am sure I will have very nice conversation.
