PASS Summit Session Preview

June 10, 2009 at 12:35 pm (PASS, SQLServerPedia Syndication) (, , )

The Pre/Post Conference Sessions and the Spotlight Sessions for the PASS Summit 2009 have been announced. Go check it out. This is going to be a fantastic conference this year based on the topics and the people presenting (and I’m still humbled to be included with that group).

I wasn’t aware that they had shifted the structure of the conference so that it takes place from Tuesday-Thursday instead of Wednesday-Friday. I’m not sure I like that. I’m not sure I dislike that.

In addition to the Pre/Post conferences, a special new session, and program, has been put together by Andy Warren on networking. Since networking is one of the very best reasons to attend the PASS Summit (although pure geek joy can be had in the sessions), this should be very useful.

Things are starting to ramp up around the Summit. If you’ve gone in years past, I think this one may be better than before. If you’ve never been, I think this may be the one to get started on.

    iirc the move from wed-fri to tues-thurs was to accommodate those who want to be home by the weekend. Previously those people would have to miss part of the friday afternoon to catch flights. Now, if they’re not doing the post-con, friday’s a free day.

    Yeah, makes sense. It still feels a bit odd.

    Any idea when we’re going to find out about the regular session?

  4. scarydba said,

    The word I heard… today, 6/11.

  5. Gail said,

    That’s announced to the public or announced to the applicants? Cause if it’s the latter it means mine didn’t make the cut and they didn’t tell me (which is unusual for PASS though normal for TechEd apparently)

  6. Gail said,

    Sorry, should read “If it’s the former …”

  7. scarydba said,

    I don’t know much. There was an email that went out telling us (volunteers) to start pushing the conference. It said the information was going to be released today, I assume to the applicants.

    BTW, Gail, you’re in a spotlight session. Look at the link above. Lies, damned lies and statistics.

  8. Gail said,

    I know. I did get the mail from them.

    Congrats, Gail!
