Missing the PASS Summit

Filed under: SQLServerPedia Syndication,Tongue In Cheek — Michael J. Swart @ 8:30 am

Well I hope this won’t turn into an annual thing! Last year, I missed the PASS summit:
Why Michael J. Swart won’t be at the PASS Summit.

And this year…

So if you’re in Seattle this week: have fun, spread some knowledge, meet some smart people.

If you’re not in Seattle like me.

  • Follow Jen McCown’s blog post here: “Attend the PASS Summit from Home”. I’ll be doing a lot of this. I’ll be watching the keynotes as they’re broadcast, but without SQL Server Denali being released, I’m not sure what’s in store.
  • Leave me a comment here or on Twitter @MJSwart. There’s no reason not to get a little networking in 🙂

I hope to see you next year in Seattle.


  1. I feel your pain. I was set to go until Friday afternoon, after checking on the status of my wife’s uncle in person (who has been like a second father to me). Prayed about it, slept on it, and felt like I needed to stay home. He passed at 11 PM on Saturday. Visitation is tonight and the funeral is tomorrow. So I obviously made the right call. But that doesn’t mean I don’t wish I was in Seattle with everyone.

  2. I’m so sorry to hear that Brian. If we both find ourselves in Seattle next year, I’ll find you and we’ll have a drink or something. Take care.
