I-380 January 2021 meeting

I-380 PASS Logo


January 2021 will be our last meeting as part of PASS. I-380 PASS will continue to meet as we have after PASS ceases operations on January 15, 2021. Many details will change, but the core of who we are and what we do will continue with little or no difference to our members. Our leaders will be a different story, but we handle change pretty well!

The meeting will start with socializing and discussion at 17:30 CT (23:30 UTC). Feel free to bring snacks, questions, and if you have any particularly special Holiday booty (presents), bring that too to show off! The discussion and questions about the group may well run over the 30 minute time frame. If it does run over, we will pause the group discussion so that the technical presentation runs on time, then resume discussion about the group afterwards.

Our final technical presentation will start at 18:00 CT (00:00 UTC). Deepthi Goguri will present on SQL Server Internals and Architecture.
