I’m really looking forward to PASS Summit this year, for a number of reasons.
The first is that I feel like it’s the summer camp experience that I never had growing up – I get to go hang out with all my #sqlfamily friends across the country and world and geek out over SQL Server, learning from some of the best in the community. I’ve also signed up to be a First Timer Buddy again this year so I’m looking forward to meeting them and showing them around.
The second is that I always come back so energized about what I do. I want to implement and get hands-on experience with all the things and share that with my co-workers who can’t make it.
The third reason is the most exciting one – I will be competing in Speaker Idol this year! When the deadline for submitting sessions for PASS Summit came up in the spring, I wasn’t sure I was ready to have a full session or even knew what I would want to submit. But I decided that if Speaker Idol was coming back, I would throw my name in and see what happens.
