  • 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 ...

  • PASS Summit 2014 Day 2 Keynote

    Adam Jorgensen, PASS Executive Vice President of Finance, came out to talk about the financial health of the PASS organization.  PASS gets $5.9M revenue from the annual Summit, and $1.3M from the BA Conference. Other than that it receives $82K from Chapters and Events, and $260K from other sources. The money raised by the community goes back ...

  • Why I am not going to PASS this year

    This is going to be one of my toughest non-technical posts ever. And the reason it will be difficult will have an ancillary relationship to the Lortabs I have been taking for the last two days. It has everything to do with me being at home while the 2014 PASS Summit is going on. Previously, the only Summit I had missed was the first one in ...

  • 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 ...

  • Developing New Speakers

    There's a lot of discussion about the process of bringing new speakers to a level that allows them to be ready and able to present at major conferences like the PASS Summit.  Andy Warren (@sqlandy) wrote a blog post about a speaker challenge and Brent Ozar (@BrentO) wrote about Speaker 47.  Erin Stellato (@erinstellato) responded to An ...

  • Why Your Abstract Wasn't Selected

    We're anxiously waiting to hear from PASS which sessions were selected for the 2014 Summit in November.  It's a big job to go through the hundreds of submissions and pick the sessions that will appeal to the people who will be paying over $1,000 to attend this annual event.  As I am also waiting to hear the results, I saw this article ...

  • Abstract Submission Day for Speaking 2014…

    Today is my least favorite part of the whole speaking thing. It is the day that I put myself out there and wait to see if I get rejected or accepted. Rejection stinks, but at the same time, being accepted means more work. Neither are perfect, and as I stated in my last post, I also have a goal of not getting myself stuck spending 7 hours a ...

  • SQL in the City (Charlotte) Wrap Up

    Ok, it has been quite a while since the event, two weeks and a day to be exact, but I needed a rest before hitting Windows Live Writer again. Speaking is exhausting, traveling is exhausting, and well, I replaced my laptop and had to get all of my software back together. (Between Windows 8.1 sync features, Dropbox and Skydrive, it has never been ...

  • 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 ...
