I didn’t attend the 2009 SQL PASS Summit in Seattle but I am following a bunch of people on Twitter who did.
There tweeting and twitpics were the next best thing.
The Twitter feed was like a stock ticker that kept me current on what was happening at SQL PASS.
What did I learn via Twitter regarding SQL PASS?
I should get the conference DVDs.
The webcast "Simplify SQL Server Management with DMVs - the Experts' Perspective" was hilarious. I attended. Buck Woody’s reign of humor continued throughout the week.
Louis Davidson (@drsql) loves sys.dm_io_virtual_stats.
I learned a simple query to find all the DMVs on a server from Buck Woody.
I can hover over the columns in Activity Monitor and see what DMV they are from.
Tom LaRock said "You don’t just get me, you get my network." A great way to justify SQL PASS attendance to a manager.
The Quest Twitter T-shirts were great.
Never ever walk out of a Buck Woody presentation.
Never bring a MacBook into a room with Buck Woody.
The keynote speeches will be on the DVDs.
One demo had a 192 CPU machine on stage. Wow.
Tweets to the SQL tweeps’ blogs further detailing their experiences.

Next year's PASS Summit will be in Seattle from November 8th - 11th, 2010. $995 rate if you register soon.
Thanks to all the SQL Tweeps for your coverage of SQL PASS last week!.
