  • 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 ...

  • PASS Summit 2011 - What you can expect at the Conference - Part 6

    Now that I have covered just about all of the ''official'' Summit activities, it is time for a blog post about ''After Hours'' activities. There is a webpage that lists some of the activities that we are currently aware of.  You can find that page here. Monday Night Networking Dinner - Last year, Andy Warren and Steve Jones started a ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Best Thing that I learned at PASS

    I remember my first PASS Summit in Denver in January 2002 (Delayed from Sep 2001 in Orlando due to Sep 11).  One of the last sessions that I attended was led by Fabian Pascal.  He runs a website called www.dbdebunk.com and is rather entertaining at times.  At the time that I attended the Summit, I was teaching at High Point ...

  • Heading to TechEd in about 6 weeks

    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 ...
