As I adjust poorly to the three-hour time difference in Seattle this morning, I thought I’d share a few highlights of this week that are personal to me:
The Panel Sessions
I had a hand in bringing three panel sessions to the Summit this year, on Data Visualization, PowerShell, and Data Systems at Scale. I’m really looking forward to the discussions that emerge from these. If you plan on attending them, keep in mind that we’re using the #visualization, #powershellhelp, and #scale channels on sqlcommunity.slack.com as a way to take questions. Feel free to join the conversation there.
My Own Survey
There are plenty of ways to provide feedback to the people behind the Summit. But as I become more and more involved as a program committee manager, I want to give attendees a more direct, personal, and open-ended way to share your opinions. I will caution you, though – this is my own initiative and not part of PASS. I intend to use this feedback for the benefit of PASS and the Summit, but I make no promises about what I share and with whom. You’ll just have to trust me. And if you don’t? Hey, don’t fill out the survey! But if you want to help me help make the Summit better, here it is: Take My Survey
And thanks for your help!
My Own Session
It’s almost been an afterthought, but yeah, I’m presenting a session at the Summit this year. I didn’t quite plan on it, but I’m glad it’s happening. It’s targeted at developers, and – like nearly every session I present – it’s focused on making apps faster. So, if you’re interested in app performance, and you’re still around for the very last session of the conference, come see me talk about the .NET Framework’s SqlClient namespace in room 2AB!
