Shakespeare, Marlowe, Johnson, HPE: Theatre sessions at Microsoft Ignite, Part 2

 general card 2.jpgActually, there will be no alas for poor Yorick. No insanity either or any of the –cides: fratri-, matri-, patri-, sui- or any of the others. Certainly not any of the personal drama that followed both Christopher Marlowe who was killed in an apparent tavern brawl and Ben Jonson who killed an actor in a duel. But the HPE Theatre sessions that will be presented at HPE Booth 2125 at Microsoft Ignite will definitely not be short on action and excitement. And you can be sure that the good guys will always come out ahead in the end. 

In this second blog on the 30 or so “plays” that HPE and our partners will be presenting, I’ll focus on the ones dealing with Microsoft SQL Server. Look for at least one more of these plot summaries coming out this week.
