24 Hours of PASS…again!

To some it may seem like I post about 24 hours of @PASS regularly, but is it a bad thing? Free web-based SQL information and training from industry professionals? You won’t hear me complaining!

This set seems like it’s a little better than before, the link to the event is here.

The sessions I will be attending are:

  • WHY DATA WAREHOUSING PROJECTS FAIL (AND WHAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT).
  • IDENTIFYING COSTLY QUERIES
  • SQLBI METHODOLOGY
  • T-SQL BRUSH-UP: THE BEST THINGS YOU FORGOT YOU KNEW
  • RELATIONAL DATABASE DESIGN FOR UTTER NEWBIES (I like hearing best practices for folks like me who’ve been doing this stuff forever)
  • ZERO TO CUBE: FAST TRACK TO ANALYSIS SERVICES DEVELOPMENT
  • TOP 10 DESIGN MISTAKES
Yeah, I know, I can only find 7 out of the 24 meetings to attend? I’m personally looking for areas that either peak my interest or I can immediately apply to my job or improve my work. Not to say the other meetings aren’t worthwhile! Take a look and sign up for ones that work for you.

24 Hours of PASS is back!

SQL PASS (@sqlpass) is having it’s FREE 24 Hours of PASS event again, May 19th and 20th. For 24 hours, industry professionals such as Brian Knight, Donald Farmer, Thomas Grohser, and Brad McGehee will be presenting topics on SQL Server 2008 R2, including database design, SSRS, SSIS, BI, data warehousing, dashboards, server performance and much more. The link to register is here. I did the last one back in October 2009 and it was fantastic. A little difficult to stay awake for some presentations, because keep in mind, this is a 24 hour event, so presentations are taking place every hour around the clock based on GMT 00:00 (UTC), but the presentations themselves are without question top notch. Don’t miss this one!
