The PASS Summit is only three weeks away and I’m getting awfully excited. It’s not too late to register. Heck, you can register at the door, but you’ll pay full price. If you want to save a little, use this registration code, FRP3D, and tell them you know me. They’ll hook you up & you’ll save $200.
If you’re involved with designing, building, developing, developing against, supporting or maintaining SQL Server databases or manage any of those who do any of the above, this is where you should be for the first week of November. You’re going to get great information from presentations by top experts within the SQL Server community. Speaking of community, this is one to take part in. You’re going to be able to network, talk to, confer, converse and otherwise hob-nob with your fellow DBA’s, Developers, and Database Developers. Don’t quite feel comfortable networking. There’s an answer for that at PASS too. A pre-conference session is being held on Monday evening just on better networking and communication.
For those who won’t, or can’t, attend the Summit, I’ll post a daily summary here on the blog. If you’re on Twitter, keep an eye out for #sqlpass tweets from me and others. Last year we put quite a load on Twitter. This year, we might just bring it down. It’s worth monitoring even if you’re at the summit. If nothing else you’ll know which parties people are attending.
Three weeks… I can’t wait. If you see me, be sure to say hello. I’m presenting twice on Tuesday (Execution Plan Best Practices, DMV’s as a Shortcut to Procedure Tuning). On Wednesday, I’ll be one of the guys wearing a kilt. On Thursday I’ll be one of the guys curled up against a wall (you’ll see, it’s tiring). This year will be great.
