Thinking about PASS

, 2005-09-18

With PASS just a little over a week away, I realized that I had better fine-tune my presentation and practice this weekend. The past few months have been crazy for me at work and at home. I've been just moving from deadline to deadline, and the presentation has been on the back burner for awhile.

I'm lucky that my kids are grown up -- my youngest is a 21 year old college student -- and my husband takes care of everything at home. Yes, I know I'm spoiled, but so is he. He quit his job 12 years ago to take care of the kids, and never went back to work. It is working very well for us and, if the roles were reversed, no one would think it was weird.

Anyway, I am really looking forward to attending PASS. I feel like I know so many people from SSC and the PASS program committee. I am really excited to be giving a presentation, too.

Hope to meet many of you there!

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.
