SQL PowerShell Pros: Submit Your Abstracts for PASS Summit!

Recently, PASS announced their first round of speakers for Summit 2017 speakers and I’m on the list! I’m particularly excited because Summit is the largest SQL Server event in the world and it’s looking like PowerShell will be getting some great exposure this year.

In addition to announcing that I’ll be speaking, PASS also declared that PowerShell is a hot topic for 2017! It’s no surprise, 2016 and 2017 have proven to be pivotal years for SQL PowerShell because of increased investment from both Microsoft and the community.

If you are a SQL Server Pro who loves PowerShell, please answer the Call for Speakers and submit an abstract! The deadline is coming up soon, on Wednesday, May 24 at 21:00 UTC. I’ve got a feeling that this year, there will be a big ol’ PowerShell Party at Summit and it would be amazing to have as much representation as possible.

If you’re concerned that you don’t have enough speaking experience, consider that earlier this year, PASS said that the selection process will be changing. I don’t know the details of the changes, but knowing PASS was going in different direction encouraged me to submit and it worked out well!

So please SQL PowerShell Pros, come to PASS Summit 2017 and represent. The community needs to hear from you!
