  • 3. PASS Latest News
    PASS Acquires SQL Saturday!
    SQL Saturday has over 28 events that have occurred world-wide with an anticipated growth of 40-50 events over the next two years
    PASS will transition the event program underneath the PASS Community Connection Events umbrella and provide SQL Saturday events the management infrastructure it needs
    We are also working to integrate our events portfolio to support SQL Saturday financially at the same levels as our PASS Community Connection branded events
    SQL Saturday event owners will not see major changes as a result of this transition, but can expect to receive higher level of engagement and support from the PASS management team.
