SQLAndy

I'm Andy Warren, currently a SQL Server trainer with End to End Training. Over the past few years I've been a developer, DBA, and IT Director. I was one of the original founders of SQLServerCentral.com and helped grow that community from zero to about 300k members before deciding to move on to other ventures.

Suggestions for PASS Published on SSC

I wrote this article shortly after returning from the PASS 2007 Summit and tried hard to come up with ideas to address what I see as shortcomings within PASS. PASS runs a great conference, but in other areas they just haven't achieved the kind of success that I know is possible - I look at SSC as an example of what is possible to accomplish with a real community! I'm not suggesting that PASS should attempt to become SSC; I think community sites like SSC, SQLTeam and MSSQLTips.com make a lot of sense and fill specific niches within the business. Rather, I look at SSC with as of today more than 500k registered users and think 'PASS could have 500k members too!'.

I hope you'll read the article and take time to add a comment. Agree, disagree, or add a new suggestion - give PASS some feedback on the direction it should take. You can also see an editorial Steve wrote about the article in the Oct 18th newsletter.
