On 11/17/2013 from 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM
For the past three MVP Summits, the Windows Azure MVPs and Windows Azure product team members have gathered at a Bellevue establishment for a happy hour. This is a great way for Windows Azure MVPs and product team members to get to know each other in a relaxed atmosphere. It's also a great way to relax after a potentially long flight to Seattle. FOR WINDOWS AZURE MVPs ONLY!

Security MVP gathering at MVP Summit
On 11/17/2013 from 7:00 PM - 11:00 PM
Sunday night (17th) of the MVP Summit I've reserved some space at the Black Bottle (http://blackbottlebellevue.com/) right across the street from the Hyatt for a casual gathering of between 7 and 11. If you are attending the summit, please come by any time and enjoy some food, drink, and conversation. The nice folks who regularly give me a paycheck have given me a company card, so food and drinks are on Tenable (no sales pitches, banners, or anything like that, Tenable is just picking up the tab).
Security MVPs and like minded folks are welcome, and of course Microsoft folks who deal with us are invited as well. Drop in for a few minutes, or a few hours, as your schedule (and jetlag) permit.

MVP Roundtable Discussion - Database Delivery
On 11/21/2013 from 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Come along for drinks, snacks, and discussion about database delivery.
Red Gate is doing a lot of research right now into Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery for databases and we would love to hear your views and stories. On Thursday 21 November 2013, we’ll be holding an informal roundtable discussion where those attending will have a chance to talk about the challenges of CI and CD for databases and how tooling or support could help. Grant Fritchey will be giving a rapidfire intro to get the roundtable going.
The discussion will be recorded and feedback shared with teams at Red Gate Software. Your opinions really will count. Hope to see you there!
