380PASS Meeting – Success!

Our first meeting was a success by all accounts! We had a great turnout with 30 people showing up.

As an ice breaker activity, we had folks pair up and try to identify something related to SQL Server, i.e. commands or terms, for every letter of the alphabet. There was a 5 minute time limit, and with only 20 seconds to spare, Randy Vandergaast and Dave Brosseau turned their sheet in to each win a $25 gift card to Barnes & Noble.

Chris Leonard gave the group a great overview of PASS and the PASS Summit in Seattle.

Brian Duhn then gave a comprehensive overview of how to set up Server-to-Server Service Broker. The entire slide show can be found at http://380pass.org, under Resources.

Thanks to our awesome sponsors, we had some great prizes to give away, and everyone walked away with something.

Thanks to everyone who attended for helping us have a great launch meeting! 🙂
