PASS, PASS Summit, Sessions
Yesterday I was notified that again this is not the year for me. My session was not accepted for the summit once again. That is OK though, I know that they only have so many spots that they can fill and I know that I was up against some good competition. I will try again next year and during the year leading up to the 2013 submissions I am going to work hard to try and get my name more well known in the speaking community. I think that I am pretty good at it and I think that I have some material that is helpful and I really want to share it.
I have one idea in the works and I will be sharing more about that soon. I hope to have this project complete in the next week or two and if it goes well then I will do more. I am also thinking that I will try to present at my local SQL Server group and perhaps even at the Powershell Users group. I would also like to try and present for the PASS VC and see how that goes. Perhaps try and get into some other smaller conferences and just get more experience. I will make it someday, I will not give up and to anyone else who was denied, I hope you look at it like I do. Just keep working and trying to get better at what you do and get out there more and you will make it as well.
To all that have been accepted to speak at PASS, Congrats and I hope that all goes well for you and that you have a great event. The SQL Server community is made up of some great and smart people and I am happy to be a part of it. I want to thank all that spend time in the community helping make everyone better.
