  • 24 Hours of PASS

    Hooray – we’re ready to announce the details of the 24 Hours of PASS event that’s coming to an internet connection near you on March 21st! Read on for the day’s schedule, some of my thoughts on the 24 Hours of PASS concept, information about the platform, and an announcement which I think is really quite a big deal and worth making a fuss ...

  • SQLRally Nordic gets underway

    PASS is becoming more international, which is great. The SQL Community has always been international – it’s not as if data is only generated in North America. And while it’s easy for organisations to have a North American focus, PASS is taking steps to become international. Regular readers will be aware that I’m one of three advisors to the PASS ...

  • Highlights and Lowlights of PASS Summit 2011

    This was a proper big week. The PASS Summit ran from Tuesday night to Friday, but I’d arrived in America the Friday before. So by the time it actually started, I had that strange feeling that things were wrapping up. My calendar was ridiculously full. The stuff that I was aware of ahead of time looked like this: Friday 7th: Arrive in America. ...

  • I should've looked the other way

    The words for that song I did at the PASS Summit 2011 are as follows. On the Friday, I stopped where the bridge starts. Various recordings of it are making it to YouTube, such as here, where the song starts around 2:20 in. I should've looked the other way Verse 1: My query sucks - it takes too long So long I wrote this song The ...

  • Data, Information and Knowledge

    Hopefully my connection is slightly better during today’s keynote than it was during yesterday’s, when “Live Blogging” didn’t really cut it. The PASS staff saw the problem and have resolved it (thanks guys!). Quentin Clark has jumped on stage to talk some more about SQL Server 2012, and he started with the expression “Data, Information and ...

  • SQL + Hadoop news

    I’m at the PASS Summit, and announcements are coming out nice and fast. One of the big ones that has just been made is that SQL Server will work much more closely with Apache Hadoop. Amazing stuff, that I think helps people realise that Microsoft is very much about providing platforms, and isn’t trying to stop you from using your other platforms ...

  • PASS Summit 2011 – Day 1 Keynote

    I’m a guest blogger again! This trip is already several days old for me. I arrived in America on Friday, delivered two sessions at Portland SQL Saturday event, walked (on Sunday) the Portland Half Marathon as a sponsor of Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training program, delivered a full-day summit precon seminar on Monday, and was in ...

  • SQL Server MVP Deep Dives Vol 2 – get my chapter free

    Yes, the SQL book I was involved in two years ago has a sequel. In the first book, I wrote chapters 7 and 40, and was one of 53 MVPs that contributed. And the proceeds went to War Child. Yes, none of the MVPs who wrote, edited, etc, got any royalties – that all went to charity. This time, I wrote just one chapter (chapter 2), but there have been ...

  • More free training from PASS

    Yeah, alright. I know PASS puts on heaps of free training all the time. There are meetings around the world all the time, as held by hundreds of chapters. Seriously, there’s over 240 chapters in the world. If you figure that they typically have a 2 hour meeting once a month, that makes over 480 hours of training per month. That’s an average over ...

  • World Series of PASS

    I’m sure Americans understand the joke that is the “World Series” of baseball. Everyone else rolls their eyes and knows that this ‘world’ means North America. Some people feel similar with PASS, unfortunately. The North American Conference and the Global Summit are one in the same, and the 2013 Summit is to be held in Charlotte, North Carolina, ...
