PASS, PASS Summit, Sessions

Yesterday I was notified that again this is not the year for me. My session was not accepted for the summit once again. That is OK though, I know that they only have so many spots that they can fill and I know that I was up against some good competition. I will try again next year and during the...

Tomorrow is the beginning of PASS. I wish I was able to attend this year again but I think that my time and money was better spent at the SQL Skills immersion event that I attended. I know that I will be missing out on some great content, networking, and parties. As much as I would like to be at...

Last week I was notified that my submission to speak at the PASS SUMMIT was not accepted. I am bummed out about it very much. This means that I will not be attending the SUMMIT this year and I really wanted to go. I just can not get work to pay for the SUMMIT and all the travel since I am also...

A few days ago PASS announced that the 2013 Summit will be in Charlotte NC. This is great news, in my opinion. I have only been to one Summit and it was AWESOME and I recommend it to any SQL Server pro out there no matter what level you are at. I had such a great time but I do not think that I will...

This session...

I thought I would focus this post on the People that were at the PASS Summit. Really not much to say except the people are a huge part about why my PASS Summit experience was so great. I mean you obviously have access to many smart people like MS employees and some great MVP's. That alone is great...

PASS Summit

Now with just about 2 weeks left before the big summit I am getting very excited. I have received my hotel confirmation and I also booked my flights last week so I should be ready to go. Also, I have been looking at all the sessions and all I can say is that I need more of me so I can be in...
