3 Seconds of Fame & Experience at PASS Summit 2017

This year was my second year at PASS Summit and I can summarize these five days as inspiring, connecting, sharing and learning.

I have been interviewed by PASS TV, where I had my 3 seconds of fame 😊 and it was a great experience to talk about this event.

If you have a chance to attend PASS Summit next year, don’t think twice…In this post, I tell you WHY…

It is a fantastic way to meet people, don’t be shy, just go and be open to make new friends.

I realized that the PASS Summit is much more than upskilling, but it is also a great place where professionals get together for a week of learning, career development and have fun at the same time.

PASS Summit is the world’s largest technical training conference for Microsoft data professionals and I feel grateful for attending PASS Summit 2017.

It was a busy week, with hundreds of sessions and events. The sessions had different levels, which helped the attendees to find the right session to go. See Session Skill Levels below:

  • 100 Level – Novice
  • 200 Level – Intermediate
  • 300 Level – Advanced
  • 400 Level – Expert
  • 500 Level – Advanced Expert

At PASS Summit 2017 I could attend and learn more about Power BI, Best Practices for SQL Developers, Analysis Services, SQL Server 2017 new features and much more. Check out all sessions delivered at PASS Summit 2017:


Every night I had a chance to attend events and catch up with professionals from all around the world.
