PASS Summit 2012 Day 2: KILT DAY!

Welcome to the fourth Kilt Day at the SQL PASS Summit. It might be a little silly, but it’s fun. It’s also Women in Technology day with the WIT Luncheon. Guys are invited.

A short word about the bloggers table. Last year we were… a little loud. So this year, we were cautioned… well, more like told to be quiet or they’d take away our toys. I agree with the intent of the message, please keep it down. But the delivery… it hurt PASS at the bloggers table and upset people. As I was reminded last night by a dear, dear friend who I accidently hurt, how you deliver a message is as important as the message you deliver.

But, that’s OK. Let’s learn from our mistakes, grow & move on.


Last night, I attended karaoke with the fine people from PragmaticWorks. Thanks guys for a great event and for letting me in the door.

And did I mention, IT”S KILT DAY!

    Does that mean you are wearing one?

    I am absolutely wearing a kilt. After all, kilt day is my baby. I started it four years ago.

    Sounds like we may share some heritage as well.

    Steve Jones is into Hawaiian shirts, as you probably well know. But I have never seen the Red Gate edition he has mentioned.

    Probably no shared heritage. I’m a pretty non-traditional kilt wearer in a very non-traditional kilt. Not the camo kilt this year, but still a Utilikilt.
