Here is May, the month of Travel

So it appears that May is going to be one of the busier travel months for me this year (at least so far).  With three important week long events scheduled for this month it's going to be a hell of a month. First is SQL Rally where I'm in Dallas Texas from May 7th-12th (I've got a pre-con on the...

Less SQL Saturday’s for me this year

SQL Bits, SQL PASS, SQL Saturday

I'm sad to say that I'm going to have to cut back on the number of SQL Saturday's that I'm going to be able to attend this year.  It's not because I don't love PASS, or SQL Saturday, or the attendees as much as I did before, because it's not.  I'm just so busy that I've been royally screwing up...

Over the weekend I had the pleasure of presenting to the great folks at SQL Saturday 109.  I'm pretty sure this was my largest SQL Saturday to date to attend with over 400 people attending the session.  Because of the massive number of great speakers, including MVPs, Microsoft Employees and local...

So I think it's been kept pretty quiet so far, as I've been insanely busy the last few weeks, but I am so thrilled to say that I've been picked to present a pre-con at the SQL PASS Rally in Dallas, Texas either on May 8th or May 9th (I haven't been told which day yet).  Either way I can't wait to...

Out of office messages, gmail and mailing lists



Posted by: Denny Cherry
MVP Summit, Social Commentary, SQL PASS

Email is pretty much the most annoying necessary evil out there.  Another annoying necessary evil out there is the out of office message.  Normally these aren't to annoying over all as they let you know that someone that you've sent a message to isn't going to be responding for a while. Where...

Been to PASS and now you are feeling a little depressed?

Going to the PASS summit is an amazing experience as you've probably noticed from all the wrap up posts that you've seen. However the downside to PASS is the sad reality that after the summit has ended you have to get back to normal work and your normal life. But that isn't actually true. You can...

Since I didn't make it to the SQL PASS keynotes this morning, I figured that I'd tell you about another little event that happened late last night.  Last night there was a SQL PASS first.  There was a wedding here at the PASS summit.  Tamera Clark (

Today was Day 1 of the SQL PASS summit.  Today there were a few announcements during the keynotes which if you didn’t see on the live streaming site you probably want to hear about. During the PASS portion of the keynote we also heard about the massive amount of training the the SQL PASS...
