PASSDC July-August Updates

Hi everyone!

We hope you have been enjoying the summer and the past few meetings we have had.

We wanted to let you know about a couple of things going on:

1) PASSDC SQL Summer Social

We are hosting a free day at the park on August 30th for local users of SQL Server. This is not a typical meeting of ours to get together and talk SQL, this is a day to get together and get to know each other and meet others that use SQL Server in the area. We are extending an open invite to you and anyone you know that has an interest in SQL Server. Bring the family along as well! We provide the venue, food and refreshments and you all will provide the fun!

You can get more details as to the location and time of the SQL Summer Social as well as register your spot (so we can ensure we have enough food, etc.)

2) We thought you might be interested to know that Chris Bell be speaking at Live! 360, November 17 - 21 in Orlando, FL. Live! 360 brings together five conferences, and the brightest minds in IT and Dev, to explore leading edge technologies and conquer current ones.

Chris will be presenting the following session:

 Prevent Recovery Amnesia Forget the Backups

Through this introductory session he will review the various aspects & myths of backups in SQL Server.

He will also pin down how developing a recovery strategy to meet business requirements is, in fact, more important than just a good backup strategy.

SPECIAL OFFER: As a speaker,Chris can extend a $600 savings on the 5-day package. Register here: and use code LSPK05.

Get better at what's available, and get ready for what's coming. We delve deep into the topics that matter most in your world today, covering practical knowledge, fundamentals, new technologies, and futures.


So that's it for this month, right now anyhow. If anything else exciting comes up we will be sure to let you know and we will see you at our next meeting on August 14th!
