Speaking at PASS

Are you planning to attend this year’s PASS Community Summit? There’s only three weeks left before the pre-conference seminars kick off, so if you’re not registered yet, now is the time to act!


The session schedule shows two days with seven full-day pre-conference seminars each, followed by three days packed full of high-quality sessions – with four time slots per day, over three days, and twelve sessions in parallel at each time slot, you problem will not be finding sessions that are of interest to you, but rather choosing between them.


And you will be able to see and hear me speaking at two of those sessions.

  • On Wednesday, I will be one of the participants in Much Ado: A Panel Discussion About “Nothing”, a debate between several MVPs and SQLBloggers about the always heated subject of NULL.
  • On Thursday, I’ll present “Cursors or setbased? Why not both?”. In this session, I’ll show that using cursors or a set-based query is not an either or decision; but that there are ways to combine the strengths of both approaches into a (sometimes!) winning strategy.

(Please note that I’m not sure if the session schedule is final or still subject to change)


So if you are at PASS, I hope that you’ll decide to drop in on either or both of those sessions. But even if you don’t, I still look forward to meeting you – so if you see me passing by and want to shake hands or exchange some opinions, don’t hesitate to catch me!

Cool...This year I will be a heckler for the Null panel!

And perhaps I will attend the Cursors session again and see if I can finish taking in the whole picture.  It was a very good session!
