The call for speakers at the PASS Summit is open now.
As of this writing, there are less than 120 sessions submitted. To put that in perspective, in 2016, there were 758 sessions submitted overall, and about ~175 general session spots.
Your chances have never been better. Get in there, people. If you’ve spoken at 3 events – whether they’re SQLSaturdays, local user groups, online webcasts, CodeCamps, anything – you’ve met the minimum bar to entry.
If your session is approved, you get a free entry into the PASS Summit. Yes, you’ll still have to pay your airfare, hotel, and meals, but I bet your company might pony up for those fees if they know you’ve been accepted to speak at one of the industry’s most premier events. It’s a Big Deal.
You should do it. It will change your life. It certainly changed mine.
And if you’re not going to do it, I’m curious: why not?
