PASS and new SSC design

Tim Mitchell, 2007-09-23

I’m rarely a “needy” guy, but I have to admit that I’m feeling a little left out. Due to project commitments and budget constraints, I didn’t get to make it to PASS for the second year in a row. The PASS conference is (or at least, has been) my favorite conference of the year, not to mention that I love Denver and all things Colorado. I’m planning to make PASS next year, even if I bankroll the trip myself.

On a lighter note, it appears that the new SQLServerCentral.com site went live sometime this weekend. There appear to be at least a few minor bugs – my forum profile declares me to be a “Supreme Being”, but also reports that I’ve only visited the site 5 times. All in all, it looks like a positive upgrade.

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.
