Free Training from PASS Virtual Chapters

We’ve got some great free training coming up this week from the AppDev and DBA Virtual Chapters of PASS.  I personally am really looking forward to “SQL Server Consolidation: How to decide on the right approach (between DB, VMs, Instance)?”  It sounds like a really good session to me 🙂  Please note that the “Defensive Programming’’ session has been timed for our international members.  We’ll have more news on upcoming session probably early next week so please check back soon.
