Community Zone

Want to stay involved in the SQL Server community year-round? Check out the Community Zone at PASS Summit 2012 and talk with PASS Community Evangelists, user group leaders, SQLSaturday organizers, and other SQL Server community groups about how you can participate.

If you represent a not-for-profit SQL Server organization, please join us. And if you’re attending PASS Summit, make sure you drop by the Community Zone to say “Hi,” ask questions, discuss exciting plans for the SQL Server community, or just hang out – who knows, you could also win some amazing prizes!

Learn more about the Community Zone in Niko Neugebauer's blog post, "PASS Summit: Get in the Community Zone."
