T-16 Days Until the PASS Summit, The Great Karaoke Crisis?

With the DATEDIFF script returning 16 today, I thought I would share a personal crisis that I am having in regards to the PASS Summit 2012.   Denny Cherry (b|t) announced during the first timers conference call earlier this week that the #SQLKaraoke event would be held Wednesday night at Bush Gardens around 9:30pm with Idera sponsoring the event.  Sounds great, this is the after hours event that I have most wanted to attend because of the #SQLFamily that attends.  This seemed like good timing because the Exhibitor reception ends at 915pm.  Life is good because now I have dinner plans and an after party to go to, right?  Not so fast my friend.

The guys over at Pragmatic Works announced yesterday that they were also throwing a #SQLKaraoke bash along with Microsoft and HP at the Hard Rock Cafe on the same night.  Their party is fronted by a live band, which sounds like a real blast.  In addition, I have a few friends over at Pragmatic Works and they are from Florida so I see them at all of the SQL Saturdays.  Is this normal for Summit, awesome competing events that is?  I will attend both, but what a bummer to have to split time at both.  It looks like everyone will benefit from this #SQLAwesomeness so this is a good problem to have.

Haven’t registered for Summit yet?  Why not?  Come on you know you want to!  See you there!  Enjoy!

  1. Actually overlapping parties is pretty common at the Summit. Keep your radar on for invites from Idera, SolidQ, SQLSentry and others. Sometimes you have to ask nice and smile.
