As described in this article, PASS “is ceasing all regular operations, effective January 15, 2021”. The 2020 has been one of the worst year ever for many companies and that is true also for the one behind the Professional Association of SQL Server.
That being said, our beloved SQL Saturdays (Parma, Pordenone, Milan, Turin, Ancona, Verona, etc.) will not be held anymore. To be honest, SQLSaturdays have been great from many perspectives:
- Community aggregation
- Offline networking
- Content sharing
- People relationship
So what? Are we losing these opportunities forever?
Well, the #sqlfamily is great and I’m proud to be part of it. But, the question is, how can we keep the value of the SQLSaturdays? We’ll start from scratch with the spirit of one of the strongest tech community ever known.
How? Take a look at datasaturdays.com and if you want to be involved, please follow the discussions on GitHub.
We need everyone’s help to continue delivering events as we’re used to do. Come with us and bring your passion!
