  • Rick Review: PASS Summit 2011 - DBA-104-S

    I recently got my DVD set from the PASS 2011 Summit and started to look through all of the sessions that I missed.  Wow!  I can't wait to go through all of these!  It will take me a while. Since this is a new year and many people are often greeted with new challenges (like a new server to manage), I decided that this session would ...

  • PASS Summit 2011 - What you can expect at the Conference - Part 8

  • PASS Summit 2011 - What you can expect at the Conference - Part 7

    I really don't think that you can get the full flavor of the Summit unless you delve into Social Networking.  There are multiple vehicles for social networking.  Twitter, Facebook, Foursquare, LinkedIn, and Yelp are all tools in the Social Networking Toolbox.  At the Summit, the best one of these is Twitter.  With twitter, yo ...

    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.

  • 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 ...
