How I plan to spend my weekend.

Filed under: SQLServerPedia Syndication — Michael J. Swart @ 12:54 pm

So on Friday after work, I’m going to hop in my car and do a run for the border. Google maps tells me that after about seven hours, I’ll be arriving in Columbus, Ohio. Bright and early next morning, I’m heading to SQL Saturday #42 and I have to say I’m pretty excited.

The PASS summit last year was amazing. I described it as a crowd of a thousand or more Michael Swarts. And all they want to talk about is Sql Server. It was like drinking from a firehose of Sql Server information and after three or four days you’re still thirsty!

Unfortunately, a repeat trip to Seattle is not in the cards for Michael Swart in 2010 (incidentally, I die a little when someone like Kimberly Tripp says, “So I’ll see you at PASS?” and I have to say “Not this year”) But I’m addicted to SQL Server User talks (by users for users). And schmoozing with DB professionals.

I’ve already picked out my courses (still tentative)

You see that spare up there? I might save that session to do some yapping or blogging. But it will no doubt still be SQL Server related.

Sunday will be touristy stuff and back home to (hopefully) apply what I’ve learned starting Monday.

So, If you’ve signed up for SQL Saturday #42 in Columbus, then seek me out and introduce yourself  (or leave a comment here, I’ll seek you out).  Cheers!


  1. Having known Dave Rodabaugh for a number of years, I can only say that I am jealous that you will be in his talk. You will not be disappointed.

    I am so excited he decided to speak at SQL Saturday #42 and was accepted. He’s one of the smartest people I know in any field, much less in SQL Server.

  2. Thanks Jeremiah, It’s good to know. That’s one slot on my planned schedule that is less “tentative” than it was 5 minutes ago 🙂
