SQL SERVER – SQLPASS 2013, Charlotte Memories – Friends and Technology – Part 1

I have been visiting SQLPASS for last 5 years and I always have a great time attending this event. For the last few years, I have been attending this event in Seattle, Washington. This year this event was at Charlotte, North Carolina. This was a new place for me as I have never visited Charlotte before. Just like every year, I look forward to this event to meet my friends. It is like an annual meet up for the SQL Server Professionals. While I still got a chance to meet my old friends it was fantastic to make many new friends. I just loved the event, I think if you are SQL Server professional, you must attend this event.

Let us see my journey to this event with the help of a few images.

I never miss to take my snap with my favorite Steve Jones. When you meet him, he lifts our spirit with his kind words.

Tim Radney and Pinal Dave – I am so fortunate to have friends like Tim. SQL brought people from two parts of the world together.

  1. Pinal,
    I am so sad that I never got a chance to meet with you. This was my first PASS and seeing you, Kimberly Tripp, and Brent Ozar were high on my list of people I wanted to meet. That said, I will never miss another PASS conference, so much excellent training and fun. Next year we must meet. Your books and blog posts have done so much for me during my career and I would appreciate a chance to tell you thank you in person.
