  • After PASS Summit 2016 Recap (As seen by me!)

    In my last blog entry, I promised to blog about the PASS Summit each night when I got back to the room. This was a failure for two reasons. 1. I was always out at night and then exhausted. 2. I forgot the keyboard to my Surface Pro. I tweeted about it, and was picked on by the @surface twitter account: But I did tweet about the event rather ...

  • The PASS Summit Has Been Very Very Good to Me

    In my blog post last March (http://www.sqlpass.org/Community/PASSBlog/tabid/1476/entryid/789/Portfolio-Update-PASS-Programs.aspx) I mentioned that my first PASS Summit was in 2003 in Seattle. I've been to every PASS Summit since then, and I can honestly tell you it's changed my life dramatically for the better.First, I learned more in those three ...

  • 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 ...

  • Ten Years with the PASS Summit

    I can't begin to tell you how honored I am to have been selected to present at the PASS Summit 2015 in Seattle this year. It's especially noteworthy for me in that this will be the tenth consecutive year I will have presented at the Summit. The Program Committee works hard to put together a slate of sessions that will help all data professionals ...

  • MVP/SQLPASS Summit Wrapup From a Non-Attendee

      (Or “How I Sort of Attended PASS This Year After All and It Wasn’t as Horrible as it Might Have Been”) Wow, my experience at this year’s MVP Summit and PASS Summit was not at all what I had expected it to be for me just weeks ago when I was planning my trip. Life intervened, and as my blog post last week here explained, the short of it is ...
