Virtual PASS PT–Full Power !!!

This week our president and great friend Felipe Ferreira (@sqlboy) asked to me if I could help him to “Come UP” our VirtualPASSPT site. First because we are facing a lot of trouble with hosts and we needed to migrate to some other. After carefully analyzing some options, Felipe chose Azure and to be honest, was a great choice.

Then, in the meantime that he was doing the migration (full time almost 4 days ) I started a journey to a “Call for Community” to help us. In the end  :

  • – We increased 50  followers  in a couple days.
  • – We increased the number of the syndications, with good bloggers,  to more 13  syndications. We also created a policy to analyze the blog before syndicate it.  We want more people but also with good content.
  • – We managed to fill the entire event grid (with new speakers) for 2012, and I already have filled the slots for the first 3 months of the 2013. You can see in here
  • – Our posts now are automatically twitted and linked to Facebook
  • The old posts are randomly twitted as well.
  • – We created new tabs on the site, to “How to syndicate your blog” and “Events “ and engage new speakers. and
  • – We will have soon,some news about the first presencial meeting from VirtuaPASSPT. What I can say now is it will not be a technical event, but for networking among the UG’s and VirtualPASSPT members.
  • – We did a  partnership with MCDBABRASIL, one of the major site about SQL Server in Brazil, . Now our news and meetings have a fixed link and are mentioned in the article and tips section. Thanks for the great friend Nilton Pinheiro (@nilton_pinheiro)


  • – We are now linked at foruns  MSDN/TECHNET Brasil with fixed links to our monthly meetings and news. Thanks to the awesome friends Roberto Fonseca(@roberto_mct) and Junior Galvão (@junior_galvao_MVP)


We also increased the page viewers from VirtualPASSPT from 40 per day to 60 per hour.


  • And we will have another great news soon.

I just need to thanks this AWESOME SQL Server community we have in here. I am proud to say that I am part of this and mainly, friend of theses guys, people that really make the difference.

Thanks to ALL SQLFOLKS that helped us, indirectly or directly . You guys rock !!!
