T-SQL Tuesday #36 (#tsql2sday)– Post-PASS Summit Depression

I had an email thread going with a prominent member of the SQL Server community today, where he confessed that he didn’t attend any sessions during the PASS Summit last week. He spent all of this time networking and catching up with people.

I, personally, can relate.

This year’s Summit was another incarnation of that ritual of SQL Server professionals meeting to share their knowledge, experience, and just have a wonderful time while doing so.

It’s been a few days after the Summit is over, and I’m definitely dealing with withdrawal.

My name is Argenis, and I’m a #SQLFamilyHolic.

I only attended two sessions, the rest of my time was networking and spending time with SQLFamily. I too as a #SQLFamilyHolic.

There are a few speakers I really enjoy watching live (e.g. Bob Ward), but for the most part I'd rather just watch the talks on the DVDs and use the time to do what I can't do at home: hang out and chat with all of the people I only get to see once a year. Absolutely no shame in not attending any sessions; that's not the only thing the conference is about.

I was loving the sessions, but the people really are the reason to go.  Although I apparently ran off Argenis a couple times. :)  

My name is Dale and I'm a #sqlfamilyholic.

I did a mix of sessions and netowrking. Depended on the day and the sessions. Wednesday was a bit of a bust for me. Several of the sessions I wanted to attend were filled to capacity and in a smaller room, while the large room, 6E, was empty. Oh well...

I am a #sqlfamilyholic and the withdrawal is killing me!  I think I need a SQLSaturday to hold me over till Charlotte.

Networking is one of the key aspects of the Summit. I can totally relate to that!

It's so nice to know that I'm not the only one suffering.

My name is Mickey and I'm a fledgling #sqlfamilyholic.
