New Video: PASS Summit Networking with Tim Mitchell

What are you doing at the end of October this year? Nothing?! It’s not too late to sign up to go to the biggest annual SQL Server conference there is – the PASS Summit. It’s, as it often is, in Seattle this year. I’ll be speaking there – giving a talk on Azure SQL Databases. I think this will be my 4th(?) time speaking at the PASS Summit, maybe 3rd. Either way, it’s the first time I’ve submitted a topic about the cloud there. It’s going to be a lot of fun.

The PASS Summit is a tremendous learning opportunity. It is more than that, though. In this video, Tim Mitchell of Tyleris Data Solutions and I discuss the upcoming PASS Summit. We chat about the sessions. We chat about the sessions we’re each presenting – Tim is also giving a cloud focused talk – Tim’s is SSIS and The Cloud: Yes, They Can Get Along. We also talked about the true opportunity that exists at PASS: Networking. Check out the video embedded below.

And be sure to check out the new YouTube page Tim and I have started up called “Data Excursions” – we’re going on journeys and chats about a number of topics in the data, consulting and SQL family realm. There are already a few other videos up that we’ve recorded and we have many more to share.

Be sure to subscribe to the channel to receive updates. Or my newsletter on the right for updates. Tim has a great newsletter on his blog also, The Data Geek Newsletter – sent out more regularly than mine are.

We will also be recording some interviews at the PASS Summit to put up on the page with all of the other videos from high level chats about concepts and consulting engagements to detailed walk through’s and how-to’s. And maybe we’ll catch you in one of our “Geek on the Street” spots at PASS!!

He started Straight Path in 2010 when he decided that after over a decade working with SQL Server in various roles, it was time to try and take his experience, passion, and knowledge to help clients of all shapes and sizes.

He’s a volunteer Firefighter and EMT in his small town in New Hampshire, and when he isn’t playing with his family, solving SQL Server issues, or talking shop, it seems like he has plenty to do with his family running a small farm in NH raising Beef Cattle, Chickens, Pigs, Sheep, Goats, Honeybees and who knows what other animals have been added!
