  • Looking Back at PASS Summit 2013 - Location

    Now that it has been a few weeks since the Summit, I wanted to look back at the location ''experiment''. Convention Center - It seemed to work well for the conference.  There were quite a few areas in the area where you could sit down and get some work down or have a discussion.  For the larger welcome reception the first night, I ...

  • What to Expect at the PASS Summit 2013

    Next week, I am tentatively planning a webcast on Oct 3, 2013 @ 12:30pm ET as I have done over the past couple of years aimed at First Time Attendees.  Once I get things confirmed, I will post a link for registration.  I updated my PPT Deck with the new information and realized that most of the message and events / timings are ...

  • PASS - Regional Seats First

    After thinking about how to cast my votes for the PASS Election, I thought about the process and how one could get confused (and even upset) if the process for seating successful candidates was not already laid out.  I found this on the PASS Elections site which proved to be helpful.  The scenario that I thought of was the ...

  • PASS Candidates Announced and Campaign Time Has Begun

    Today was the official announcement of the Candidates and the official start of the Campaign.  PASS Campaigns sure have changed a lot since I originally ran for a seat (and lost) in 2002.  The process has changed to become more rigorous in the Nomination stage.  This is a very good thing because in my view, there are no bad choices ...

  • Developing a Keynote for SQL Saturday #250

    I volunteered to help out and present a keynote at SQL Saturday #250.  It worked out that they couldn't find anyone better.  :-)  I am really looking forward to it and hope that I do not disappoint. The time available is about 40 minutes so it can't get too technical. Although I have been a part of 2 keynotes at the PASS Summit, I ...

  • PASS Election Time is Here (Almost)

    According to the PASS Election Timeline, the PASS BoD will take up the issue of approving the slate of candidates to be presented to the community for voting.  These candidates have taken a big step in putting themselves out there for election.  They have gone through the application process and the interview process by the NomCom to be ...

  • I'm speaking at SQL Saturday #250 in Pittsburgh!

    On September 14, 2013, I will be speaking at the 2nd SQL Saturday event to be held in Pittsburgh.  I spoke at the last SQL Saturday event last year which was a blast.  This year, I will be presenting a session entitled ''Really Basic Perfmon''.  It is designed for the person who has heard about Perfmon before, but never really got ...

  • Blog Posts from Prepping for Last Year's Summit

    Last year, I had a series of blog posts that matched up with a webcast I did targeting First Timers to the PASS Summit 2011.  Here is a link to the final blog post which is a summary of those posts and links to the main points in the series. A good deal of the information in those posts are still relevant.  I am in the process of ...

I am fortunate to know all 5 candidates for ...
