SQLServerCentral had a press release today about attending the Summit and the networking opportunities, something that I've been blogging about and so has Tom Larock. I mentioned it in my PASS Update today, but I wanted to say again here that I think the biggest reason to attend the Summit (or other conference if you must!) is the people. Not just the speakers, but everyone there that makes it such a great venue because no matter where you sit, next to you is going to be someone as interested and as passionate as you are about SQL Server.
Of course, not all of us are good at starting conversations and meeting new people, so that's why I think PASS needs to do more to teach and facilitate those conversations. Something to think about.
