News about SQL Server and the SQL Server Community

In case you did not hear, PASS Call for Speakers is now open!

In the latest PASS Community Connector, there is a call for Speakers for this year's summit in Seattle in November.  If you have never been to Seattle in November, it really makes you want to learn more about SQL Server in the breakout sessions. ;-)   But seriously, it is a great venue to meet other SQL Server professionals and meet the MSFT who actually write the code for SQL Server itself.  You know that since MSFT is located in nearby Redmond that the place will be very accessible to MSFT developers and managers.

 Also, did you know that the abstracts that are submitted are reviewed/selected by a committee of PASS Volunteers just like you? 


Join other industry professionals and help build the SQL Server community as a 2008 PASS Community Summit speaker in Seattle, Washington, November 18-21.  Act now and submit an abstract by the March 28th Deadline.

All speakers receive:

  • Complimentary registration to the 2008 PASS Community Summit
  • Industry recognition
  • Networking opportunities with thousands of attendees

Microsoft employees are encouraged to submit presentations using the online submission website.  Please note that any Microsoft submissions will be reviewed and abstract status will be determined by Microsoft.

For more information, please visit our Call To Speakers website at or e-mail any questions to

Just out of curiosity, what's up with the use of "to" instead of "for" between "call" and "speakers"?

Must be a New Age phraseology thing, giving you a touch of coherency and interconnectedness between sentient beings, and a sense of engery and power flowing between them. 'Call for speakers' sounds so dogmatic, so centered around societally sanctioned authorities.
