PASS Summit 2015

, 2015-10-19

Yes, it is that time of the year again. You know, when all the nut case and normal SQL Server experts collide in Seattle (or wherever the Summit is located) to experience the largest gathering of data experts on this planet. Well, I might be lying a little about the personalities of these people (including myself), but I am getting excited about next week.

PASS Summit 2015

I just tried to build my schedule of sessions to attend and had the same problem. 3 to 4 sessions that I want to see but only have time for one. Good thing these are recorded and I can watch after the event.

That is not the only problem. I have to find time to visit vendors, talk to attendees I know and have not meet yet and give a 3 hours session on Tabular plus the after hour events. This is an exhausting week, but has paid dividends 10 fold from attending 8 of the last 9 years.

If you have not attended this event and have the budget to do it, please do not pass up. You can read many blogs and articles about the benefits of membership to PASS plus sessions to learn about SQL Server and the Microsoft Data Platform roadmap.

Hope to see ya there and please come say hi to me!!!

Speaking at Community Events - More Thoughts

Last week I posted Speaking at Community Events - Time to Raise the Bar?, a first cut at talking about to what degree we should require experience for speakers at events like SQLSaturday as well as when it might be appropriate to add additional focus/limitations on the presentations that are accepted. I've got a few more thoughts on the topic this week, and I look forward to your comments.
