First-Timers Information - Webinars

Watch the recordings of Summit Alumni Denny Cherry's First-Timers webinar and Rick Heiges' What to Expect at PASS Summit 2013 covering important information on the Convention Center layout, getting to and from the airport, tourist activities in the area, and more! 

"Get to Know Your Community" Sessions

Long-term PASS members and past Board Members Kevin Kline and Kendal Van Dyke will tell you all you need to know about PASS and the worldwide #sqlfamily in these introductory sessions for first-time attendees. No additional registration is required, but seating is limited so please arrive early to avoid disappointment.
