PASS – Database Administration Abstract Selection Team

“Welcome to the PASS 2009 Program Committee Abstract Selection Team”

SQLInsaneo sent out an email yesterday to all the committee members and I’m happy to report that I’ve been selected for the Database Administration Abstract Selection Team.  Joining me is our fearless team leader Jason Massie (StatisticsIO) and a gentleman that I haven’t met yet (in person or via Twitter 🙂 hehehe) Ayad Shammount whom (if my “googling” skills are up to par) is a “Lead Technical DBA and an 18 year IT veteran”.  Not bad company if you ask me.

This will be my first year on the abstract selection team so I’m looking forward to helping out as much as I can with the abstract selections and learning more about how a conference the size of the PASS Summit comes together as a whole.  The passion, dedication, and interest out there for PASS and SQL Server in general is pretty amazing.

Speaking of PASS I’m currently in the process of gathering speakers, sponsors, members, etc for the SQL PASS Edmonton Chapter and hoping to have our first introductory meeting within the next couple months.  (Once things are in order I’ll post another blog entry about the details)

    Congratulations, sir! I hope you keep up the same excellent quality standards as past selection teams and continue to weed out my presentations, hahaha.
