I attended the online Town Hall yesterday, the second one that PASS has held this year. The recording should be available soon (next week) for those that missed it. On to my thoughts: Bravo to PASS for continuing to do this. More communication, more channels, I like the trend. I think it’s tough/distracting to have […]

Beautiful weather for a SQLSaturday! Everything went well, as expected but always appreciated. Just a few notes on this one: They had one person dedicated to the donuts/coffee area, cleaning up empty boxes and helping point out which boxes had what kind. Nice service.
