Notes: Questions and Topics
Upcoming TriPASS Elections
We have three seats on the TriPASS board up for election this November: President (me), VP of Marketing (Rick Pack), and Treasurer (Mala). Nominations are open, so if you are a TriPASS member on the Meetup, reach out to me if you are interested in running for one of the board seats. Rick, Mala, and I are running but if you want to throw your hat into the ring, you are welcome to do so.
Voting will start on the 3rd Thursday in November and run through the first Thursday in December. Terms will begin in February of 2023 and run for 2 years.
If you are an active TriPASS member, this is your last chance to fill out our semi-annual survey. It will be open for a few more weeks and this helps shape the next two years for the organization.
Data Platform Conferences
The main theme of tonight’s show was around data platform conferences, as both PASS Summit and Live! 360 are coming up next week. We covered a few topics:
- How specific should data platform conferences be?
- How difficult it can be for high-end people to learn much at conferences. Alternatively, why are there typically so few 300+ level sessions?
- Some of the background on session selection and trying to balance competing needs.
- How many times can Kevin say the word “ecumenical” on a broadcast?
