PASS, PASS Summit, Summit
Tomorrow is the beginning of PASS. I wish I was able to attend this year again but I think that my time and money was better spent at the SQL Skills immersion event that I attended. I know that I will be missing out on some great content, networking, and parties.
As much as I would like to be at PASS this year I am actually OK with not being there since I am only in my fourth week at my new job and I think I am really going to like this job. I think that it is going to turn into everything that I thought and hoped it would be. But I digress, I will try to follow as much about PASS as I can but not too sure how much that will actually be. I am looking forward to reading blogs about the event and the keynotes as well as the sessions. I am thinking about ordering the DVDs this year. I did last yer even though I was at the event and I have been very glad that I have them. So even if you are at the summit I would highly recommend that you get them.
If it is your first time at the Summit then I have this advice for you. Network and find the parties. You will have a good time and you will meet some great people that are having or have had the same challenges that you are facing right now. they will be able to help you with those issues even if that is just letting you talk them thru the issue. Sometimes just that dialog helps you figure it out and that is just awesome when that happens.
So go out and have a great time and learn as much as you can. Get the DVDs and meet as many people as you can. You will not regret it and I hope to see you next year, fingers crossed, if I get to go.
