  • Your Presence Matters at the PASS Summit

    This year will be my tenth year attending the annual PASS Summit. It's in Seattle again this year, which to me is important because of the proximity to the Microsoft offices and the people on the SQL Server dev team, as well as the CX (formerly CAT) teams that help so many people get the most out of SQL Server. The conference is the biggest ...

  • SQL Rally Presentations

    As I drove to Dallas for this year's SQL Rally conference (yes, I like to drive) I got a call asking if I could step in for another presenter who had to cancel at the last minute.  Life happens, and it's best to be flexible, and I said sure, I can do that. Which presentation would you like me to do? (I'd submitted a few presentations, so it ...

  • We Are SQLFamily

    On Monday, Tom LaRock (b/@sqlrockstar) presented his #MemeMonday topic as What #SQLFamily Means To Me. The #sqlfamily hash tag is a relatively new one, but is amazingly appropriate. I've been working with relational databases for almost 20 years, and for most of that time I've been the lone DBA. The only one to set things up, explain how things ...

  • PASS Summit 2011 - The Final Day

    Today's the last day of the Summit, and Rick Heiges introduced Rob Farley and Buck Woody, who sang Rob's ''Query Sucks'' song. As is everything done by these two, it was way too much fun.  Rick also did a retrospective of Wayne Snyder, PASS Immediate Past President. Wayne recognized Rick, who's rolling off the board this fall as well.  ...

  • PASS Summit 2011 Day 2 - Women In Technology & SQLKilt Day

    The second full day at the Summit is the day we recognize Women in Technology, and (merely by coincidence) the day we wear kilts to the event. This latter tradition started two years ago when Grant Fritchey, Steve Jones and Bill Fellows wore their kilts to the conference.  Last year close to forty of us wore them, and it's grown beyond that ...

  • PASS Summit 2011 Day 1 - At the Blogger's Table

    PASS selected me this year for a seat at the blogger's table for the keynote address each day. This is a singular honor, to be able to share with you my thoughts almost in real time.  (How close to real remains to be seen - I'm having a bit of trouble with the overloaded network.)  The level of excitement in the room is amazing. Dr. ...
