A Busy Summit

I’m only at the PASS Summit for two days, but they will be busy. If you’re at the event and want to find me, here’s my schedule. If you do see me, please feel free to say hi. If I can’t stop to chat for long, it’s because I’m likely late for something, but I do want to shake hands.


Lunch: I’ll arrive mid morning and get myself checked in. I don’t know if I’ll be in the lunch area, but I’ll likely stop by the Redgate booth.

1:30-3:00 – Branding Yourself for a Dream Job, Rm 612. I’ve done this at the Summit before, and a number of other events, but people like it, so I got picked to do it again. I’ll talk about some practical ways to brand yourself and take control of your career.

3:00-6:00 – I’ll likely go to a few sessions or meet friends, but I should be around the expo area part of the time.

Dinner with friends later and an early night for me.


Early morning will be final rehearsal and prep for me. I’ll do some early in the week, but I like to practice my timing again, especially for my second session.

11:00-12:30 – Adopting a Compliant Database DevOps Process, Room 606. I did a version of this last year and people really liked it, so I’m back again. I’ll talk process and how you can do DevOps in the database, and will show demos, but really this is a process talk. The details of the demos don’t matter, but you get to see changes flowing through the system with a few taps of a finger.

Lunch – Expo hall for me.

15:30-17:00 – Minimizing the Impact of Data Breaches in Dev and Test Databases, Room 604. A higher level talk, mostly aimed at convincing you to be more careful with data. No real demos here, mostly just a talk that looks at how and why you need to protect data.

17:15 – I’m off, heading to the airport. As I mentioned, a short summit for me.
