PASS Book List

Andy Warren, 2009-09-22

Since the beginning of the year I’ve been trying to include a SQL related book in the bi-weekly Connector. Basically I hit Amazon and search for SQL Server, look for a book that has been recently published (and is shipping!), then try to make sure I’m alternating publishers so what we don’t play favorites. Sanj at PASS HQ put up a page at http://www.sqlpass.org/LearningCenter/NewsletterArchive/BookReviews.aspx that lists the ones we featured so far, interesting to look at, and makes it easier for me to keep track of which publishers we’ve featured lately. No complicated algorithm, no web service, no fee to get a book listed, just me scrolling the list and picking one that I think the members might be interested to hear about.

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.
