    I figured we were overdue for a PASS Summit thread!

    This year, I'm pleased to say that not only am I attending my first-ever PASS Summit, I've also been picked to speak!

    Flight and lodging arrangements are made, and I've already signed up for the buddy program!  I'm also keeping tabs on the activities that are going on!  Can't wait!

    Any other advice for first-time PASS Summit attendees (like me)?

    What is the "Buddy Program"?  Sharing a hotel room?

    --Jeff Moden


    RBAR is pronounced "ree-bar" and is a "Modenism" for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
    First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
    ________Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
    "If you think its expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur."--Red Adair
    "Change is inevitable... change for the better is not."
    When you put the right degree of spin on it, the number 3|8 is also a glyph that describes the nature of a DBAs job. 😉

    Enjoy yourself. If you swing the recordings, you can not worry about which sessions you see, or you can change your mind. There can be lots of walking, as the convention center is spread out, so be ready for that.

    Don't forget to exercise a bit when you're there. Keep a little routine will help during the week. If you have time, SEA is a neat city.

    Congrats Ray, bummed I'll miss the preso.

    If you're able, try and get to an after party each night also, helps with the networking and fun.  Some are invite only so make sure to register early (likely too late now).
