Setting up for PASS Summit Orientation

I am in the process of finalizing a date (week of Sep 19) for a LiveMeeting event that will focus on the upcoming PASS Community Summit. It will be primarily targeted at the first-timers to the Summit, but everyone will be welcome to join.  There will be event information forthcoming on the PASS website - www.sqlpass.org.

Here is a rundown on the topics that I plan to cover:

  • What is PASS?  PASS Events (Summit, Rally, 24hop, SQLSat, Chapters, Virtual Chapters)
  • What to Expect / How to read the Program Guide and Smart Phone App to Plan your Itinerary
  • Pre-cons, half-day sessions, spotlight sessions, Speaker annotations (MVP, MCM, SQLCAT)
  • Stuff besides Sessions (Hands-on labs, SQL Clinic, Expert Pods, Birds of Feather Lunch, etc.)
  • Social Media (Twitter, Foursquare, Flickr, etc)
  • Activities "outside of the Summit" (SQL Karaoke, Photo walk, Kilt Day, etc)
  • Logistics - Getting to the Summit from SEA-TAC (light rail, shuttle, cab, etc.)

I have gone through the Flickr photos.  Always looking for more "gems".  Looking for photos that may help with logistics or showcasing interaction at the summit. Leave a comment for a link to other sites like Flickr with pictures from past summits.

Thanks!
