  • PASS Summit 2011 - What you can expect at the Conference - Part 4

    The Summit is much more than just geat content from excellent speakers.  There is a great deal of other stuff going on at the Summit to really enhance your experience.  In this post, I will not focus on the ''after hours'' events. Do you want to get your hands dirty with Denali?  Perhaps you downloaded the latest Denali bits, but ...

  • PASS Summit 2011 - What you can expect at the Conference - Part 2

It probably will change once you get onsite, but having a plan will save you time and perhaps some frustration.  You can go to the Summit website and start to build your schedule. When you arrive at registration to get your badge and ...

  • PASS Summit 2011 - What you can expect at the Conference - Part 1

    This is the first in series of blog posts about getting ready for the PASS Summit 2011.  Why am I doing this?  I am preparing for my webcast on Sep 20 @ 1pm ET (Details to come) about this subject.  I thought that I'd get this information out in a blog format as well.

    I have been attending Teched every year since 2005. Last year, I really did not like the separation that was ''forced'' between IT Pro and Dev.  I like to attend sessions from both areas - SQL covers both areas.  I am glad they combined it this year (as it should be IMHO).  Once again, I will be in the TLC area where I LOVE to ...
