  • PASS/MVP Summits Reflections

    Wow, it was great actually getting out to the summits this year. Sitting here in the SEATAC airport, waiting for it to be time to get in a flying tin can, I wanted to jot down a few reflections I had from the two weeks. Some of the things I noticed (that aren’t under some sort of NDA, at least) this year over my two weeks are: The Cloud is ...

  • Thank *you* for my SQL Server MVP Award…

    Today, I was awarded (at least) one more time with the Microsoft MVP Award. This makes 12 years, and with this, my 11th renewal, I have yet to feel like it is something I can take for granted (you don’t want to be around me the last week of September!). It has been a great time so far, and I have no idea how many years I will be back (admittedly, ...

  • Upcoming Speaking Engagements in Indianapolis and Louisville

    Mercy, July is flying past at breakneck pace isn't it? The best part of July passing into the history books is that August has me speaking at two SQL Saturday's, one of them being a first time for me. On August 8 I will travel up to Indianapolis for SQL Saturday #402, a city I have been to a few times previously but not for a SQL Saturday. My ...

  • PASS Summit Attendance “Advice”

    Wow, it is fall again, and in a large percentage of the minds of SQL Community members, that means that the PASS Summit is here again. I have been to all of the Summits save the first one, and honestly it has become one of the highlights of my nerd year. I have learned a tremendous amount about SQL, made a lot of real friends, and gained a taste ...

  • Live from the #summit13 keynote : 2013-10-17

    Douglas McDowell (EVP Finance) takes the stage (no kilt), and talks numbers. PASS has an impressive $1MM in reserves as a ''rainy day'' fund. Last fiscal year they spent $7.6MM on community; 30% of that was spent internationally.  Bill Graziano comes on (no kilt) to say goodbye and thanks to the outgoing board members, Douglas McDowell, Rob ...

  • Live from the #summit13 keynote : 2013-10-16

    Early morning start here in Charlotte.

He mentions that PASS delivered over 700,000 hours of technical training in the previous fiscal year, and shows ...

  • PASS/SQL In The City Are Coming Up Very Soon...

    Every September for the past 12 years, not only does summer slowly come to an end, but it is the time that final preparations for the SQLPASS Summit are being made by just a ton of people. I have always focused on speaker preparations myself for the most part, but there are hundreds of other folks furiously prepping to make the trip up to ...

  • Blogging from the PASS Summit Keynote : Day 3

    This is a rough morning. Got in at 2:00 AM, then had no water in my hotel this morning. I doubt I will ever voluntarily stay at the Seattle Hilton again. Still, I'm very much looking forward to this keynote - the illustrious Dr. David DeWitt is going to make my brain hurt today! First, though, Rick Heiges introduces Rob Farley and Buck Woody, who ...

  • Blogging from the PASS Summit Keynote : Day 2

    VP Finance, Bill Graziano comes on stage in a great kilt (but white socks!). No Tina Turner this year. 1,000 people from 53 countries watched the keynote yesterday. He recognizes Tim Radney (@tradney) and Jack Corbett (@unclebiguns) for their outstanding volunteer work over the past year, and then congratulates Lori Edwards as this year's PASSion ...

  • Blogging from the PASS Summit Keynote : Day 1

    Before the lights came down, I had already hit what will probably be the highlight of my morning: having a brief conversation with Dr. David DeWitt. Rushabh Mehta, President, PASS Rushabh Mehta comes on the stage and welcomes us to PASS Summit 2011. His message: ''THIS is community.'' He invites us to come to the PASS Board of Directors Meet ...
