Expert Pods 

Key Microsoft and community experts are at the ready to answer your questions. Our Expert Pods, staffed by both Microsoft employees (SQL Server engineers and program managers) as well as MVP community experts, will be located in different areas of the 6th floor of the convention center. Each pod addresses a specific topic (see all topics below) so you can dive right in and ask away or simply have a conversation with any of the experts staffing the pod. Make sure you stop by.
