Would You Like to Do Technical Reviews of Articles for PASS’s SQL Server Standard?

If you haven’t heard yet, PASS has started commissioning articles to be published in the new PDF version of the SQL Server Standard. If you are an experienced DBA with writing experience and want to participate, then you need to check out this link. It provides all of the information you need to get you started on your way to writing for the SQL Server Standard.

On the other hand, if you don’t have time to write an article, but would like to help out, I am looking for volunteers to help perform technical reviews of the articles that will be published in the SQL Server Standard. I have volunteered to be the lead technical reviewer, but while there are many SQL Server topics I know well, there are many others where I have little or no experience, and that’s where I need your help.

If you would like to volunteer as a technical reviewer, please e-mail me at bradmcgehee@hotmail.com, and tell me where your SQL Server interests and strengths lie, and then when I have an article that matches those areas, I will send it off to you for technical review. All you need to do is to read the article, and if you see any technical mistakes in the content, then make a note in the article, and we will send it back to the author for correction.

This is a great opportunity to get involved with PASS, and to contribute to the greater SQL Server Community!

"Volunteers?" Meaning that PASS is no longer paying for technical reviews?

Content and technical editing of articles submitted to the SQL Server Standard is PASS volunteer work, although the author gets paid. PASS, and myself personally, encourage everyone involved with PASS to share their expertise and knowledge with the SQL Server community, whether it is as a technical reviewer; the program committee, which helps select speakers for the PASS community summit, working with their local PASS chapter; or in one of many other capacities.
