My “better late than never” PASS Summit online session recordings blog

December 22, 2011

It was been way too long since my last blog post, but it has been a busy couple of months at my company, which isn’t a bad thing at all.

But, with a bit of a break in the last week or two of 2011, I had some free time to browse through the 2011 Summit online session recordings (available at the PASS Summit 2011 Learning Center web site – for Summit attendees only) and view several sessions that I had to “pass” on (yep, that was a pretty weak attempt at humor) back in October.

First, I love the recordings being in WMV format, so that I can play them back at faster-than-recorded speed. Most sessions can survive a replay rate of 1.5x to 2.0x to still be understandable, and I can get through a lot more content that way.

Second, I’m even more firmly convinced that the session content and quality has been outstanding this year. I have pages and pages of notes from watching some of these videos – much more than I could’ve written if I had attended the session live – of ideas and information that’ll keep me busy into early 2012.

Third, I’m a little depressed that there is still so much I’m catching up on in 2008 (and R2) and SQL2012 is right around the corner. But, that’s what keeps things interesting as a SQL DBA … right? Right!

Finally, for whoever might be reading my blog .. probably because you fat-fingered something in Google and it brought you here by mistake .. have a very Merry Christmas – or whatever occasion you choose to celebrate with loved ones in the next week and a half – and maybe watch a session or two if you have the time. Above all, recharge so that you can hit 2012 with both feet running.
