The Value of Networking

"You can't meet people at a webinar, at a virtual conference, or anywhere but in person. And while there are lots of free events, none of them bring together over 1,000 SQL Server professionals that share common interests. The PASS Summit does and it's a great conference to attend.

We have written before about the great learning opportunities at the Summit with great speakers and Microsoft developers. And those are great reasons to attend, but the chance to meet other professionals is equally important. You will get inspired, make friends, maybe even make contacts that can help you later in your career."
