PASS Summit 2008 Debriefing

I didn't blog much from PASS and it was intentional.  Since I was covering PASS sessions for Universal Thread, I didn't put time into covering them on here.  You can read about the sessions I attended on the following link:

Reading about PASS Summit sessions will never match up to the experience of actually attending PASS Summit in person.  For me personally, the sessions were good, but the social networking us what really should drive people to attending events like PASS Summit.  I met and spoke with people from over a dozen different countries this week.  There were many MVP's at the summit which was simply awesome since I got to meet and hang out with the people who been teaching me SQL Server for the last 4 years.  I also got to sit on a discussion panel on Automating DBA Tasks, sponsored by Quest Software as a fill in for Buck Woody who was not able to make it at the last minute. 

If you'd like to catch up on PASS, check out the UT coverage above, but also check out the following blog post from Gail Shaw which lists some blogs to look at.  Also check out others that she missed:

If you aren't a member of PASS, I'd recommend that you join, it is after all free.
