Come Shake My Hand at PASS

, 2011-08-24

Last year Andy Warren thought about trying to help first timer attendees at the PASS Summit with a little networking event. Two years ago he brought Don Gabor in for a networking pre-con that was very popular, and wanted to try something new. So we rented Lowell’s out down at Pikes Place Market and invited people down. We weren’t sure how it would turn out, but we decided to risk some of our money and see.

It was a smashing success, with dozens, maybe even a hundred people there. I got to meet quite a few people for the first time, which always makes me smile. I am sure the same thing happened to many other people and the networking was great.

We decided to do it again, and we’ve reserved Lowell’s again from 6pm-9pm on Monday, October 10, 2011. Anyone is welcome, and it’s a short walk from the convention center down to the famous Pikes Place Market.

Register today if you’re coming

We ask that you register so we can plan the staff with the restaurant. It doesn’t cost anything, but you are responsible for your own food and beverage bill.

Come say hi, meet some new people, and shake my hand. I’d be happy to meet you.

We are sponsoring this as part of The Mentoring Experiment.

Speaking at Community Events - More Thoughts

Last week I posted Speaking at Community Events - Time to Raise the Bar?, a first cut at talking about to what degree we should require experience for speakers at events like SQLSaturday as well as when it might be appropriate to add additional focus/limitations on the presentations that are accepted. I've got a few more thoughts on the topic this week, and I look forward to your comments.
