  • PASS Summit 2011 - What you can expect at the Conference - Part 3

    Another question that you may have is ''What about food?  What meals are included?  Should I budget for meals?'' Breakfast:  A Continental Breakfast will be served from 7-8am in the Meal Hall on the 4th floor across from Registration Wed - Fri Lunch: This meal is usually more substantial.  It is often quite good.  Your ...

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

    One of the things that you should do is map out your ''Learning Itinerary'' before coming to the summit. 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. Even before the Conference Begins, there are some great ...

  • Untapped Benefit?

    Are you using your benefits to further your SQL Server skills? The other day, the company I work for (Scalability Experts) had a benefits meeting where open enrollment for insurance and other similar things were discussed.  Since we are a small company, we outsource HR/Payroll/Benefits and I discovered a new benefit that I was unaware of ...

  • This 24 Hours of PASS was "Different"

    Last week, the latest iteration of ''24 Hours of PASS'' was held.  It was ''Different'' for me.  Why?  Because I was not an active participant on the days of the event other than being an attendee.  I was involved in some aspects of the planning for the event when deciding the theme and format, etc.  I was on many calls ...

  • Recap of SQLSat #65

    Since the MVP Summit was this past week, I decided to head out to the West Coast a little earlier and attended SQLSat#65. I did not submit to speak at the conference, but I did help out some by introducing speakers in one of the rooms and a few other places where I could. I started out in a session by Scott Klein about SQLAzure.  BTW, ...

  • What should PASS be?

    Recently, there have been some blog posts about what PASS should be? It is great to see these posts because it gives the BoD feedback on how we are doing and where we can improve. When I first started to get involved in PASS back in 2001, PASS was little more than a conference and some loosely affiliated chapters.  It wanted to be more ...

  • PASS By-Law Changes

    Over the past year, the PASS Board of Directors (BoD) has been looking at changing the by-laws.  We've had in-depth in-person discussions about how the by-laws could/should be changed.  Here is the link to the documents that I am referring to: http://www.sqlpass.org/Community/PASSBlog/entryid/300/Amendments-to-PASS-Bylaws.aspx One ...
