PASS 2012 Countdown – 0 Weeks to Go!

By StrateSQL, 2012/11/05

Seriously, the clock is ticking and you should be in your car or a plane for PASS Summit by now.  If you haven’t registered yet, you’re past cutting it close.  Click the banner and do the deed, then get over to the convention center and get your name badge.

In the spirit of all of the posts from the previous weeks (1, 2, 3, 4, 5.1 and 5.2), let’s have a video to go with this week’s post.  I figured we needed something a bit current and something that would make everyone cringe… a lot… so check this out…

 

My PASS Schedule

In the spirit of networking and trying to figure out what I want to see next week, I’ve included the schedule that I’m planning to keep for PASS this year.  I put this together using PASS’s Schedule Builder that I discussed in a previous post.  I encourage you to go out and put your schedule together.  Also, if the videos from this series have inspired you and you want to connect, these will help you track me down.

Mobile PASS Agenda

One last thing, if you have a smart phone, make sure you load Guidebook onto it.  You can browse the sessions, schedule, and other events through your phone and keep up with everything that is happening.  You can get started by searching for Guidebook in your mobile application marketplace or browsing to http://guidebookapp.com/getit.  Look through the directory and you’ll find the PASS Summit listed.
