The buzz in twitter says it all. The #SQLFamily is all pumped up for a great PASS Summit experience 2017, and so am I. I would highly recommend you to follow @sqlpass and #PASSsummit in twitter for all the latest happenings, if you are not already.
This is my first time at the PASS Summit – and over the last few weeks I have been reading so many blog posts about things to do at PASS Summit, travel tips, must attend events, networking opportunities and much more. All these resources were immensely helpful and informative. I would like to thank all for sharing their experiences with the community.
The PASS Summit is unique in so many ways. The one thing which I like the most is the immense opportunity it provides to the First-Timers and make them feel at Home —
The Buddy Program teams up a small group of First-Timers and an experienced PASS Summit attendee and help them answer questions and make them feel comfortable. My PASS Summit buddy is Andrew Nakamura – I am yet to meet him in person, but I really do plan to do so. He has been providing our group with lot of tips and tricks for attending PASS Summit and also helped answer lot of my queries.
First-Timer Orientation and Speed Networking Session seems like another fun networking event to break the ice, scheduled for later today.
There are a number of Conference Sessions conducted by the PASS Community Team to provide attendees with general overview of the PASS Summit so that they do not feel overwhelmed with all the information on offer during these 4 days.
Birds of a Feather Luncheon seems to be a nice program to share your experiences over lunch with a like minded group of people discussing on various topics like Application Development, Community, Big Data, Database Development, Data Warehousing and more.
Apart from all these events and the other great line of Keynotes and talks including the Microsoft Tiger Team, I am super excited to be speaking at the PASS Summit this year.
