  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Caught by the roving eye at TechEd, Catching Up on Katmai

    I was in Orlando for Tech for 2.5 days.  It was great to see some old friends and make new ones too.  I saw fellow SQLBloggers like Kalen, Kevin, and of course Peter to drop a few names.  Today, a colleague of mine on the Board of Directors with PASS shot me an e-mail.  On the red-gate website, there is a video testimonial by a ...
