Once again I’m a part of two fun events at the 2011 PASS Summit that I hope you’ll join me in attending.
The Mentoring Experiment – Monday Night
Andy Warren (LinkedIn | Blog | @sqlandy) and I started The Mentoring Experiment earlier this year as a way to try and help people grow their careers. It has been going well and we’ve rented out Lowell’s in the Pikes Place Market on Monday night from 6pm-9pm. Please feel free to come by and join us.
We rented the space, but each person is responsible for their own food and drink. That should not, however, deter you from offering to buy a new friend a drink
The registration is for planning, but even if it shows full, come by if you have time and would like to meet a few fellow Summit attendees.
The Exceptional DBA Awards Party – Tuesday Night
For the last eight or nine years, SQLServerCentral has hosted an opening night party, just after the official PASS opening reception. We’ve tried a few things, but settled on a casino themed party for the last 5 or 6 years and it’s been great fun.
This year we have arranged for it to happen again, and you can join us for some networking fun and also meet the 2011 Exceptional DBA award winner. We will once again have a casino caterer, allowing you to get some virtual “fun” money and enjoy various games. Come join us and have fun with fellow attendees on Tuesday night.
We will have a cash bar available and there will be lots of random prizes, so try your luck at a few games and you might come home with a fun prize.
We are selling tickets in advance for $20, or you can bring $30 to the event and pay at the door. Details are below:
When: Tuesday 11 October 2011, 8-11pm
Where: PASS Summit, Seattle – Room 2AB, Washington State Convention Center
