Foundation Sessions

New to PASS Summit this year will be 4 Foundation Sessions from senior Microsoft leaders and their teams covering: Advanced Analytics, Big Data and Data Warehousing, Business Intelligence, and Designing Modern Applications on Azure. These sessions provide insight into new features and product investments across Microsoft’s data platform. You will not want to miss this opportunity!


Bring your laptop or use one of ours to walk through our new Microsoft Solutions Workshops. Designed to not only give you hands-on experience with the latest Microsoft technologies, workshops allow you to create sample solutions you can take with you.  Each day consists of several modules for a single solution. Join one module or stay the whole day for the full project. This will be time well spent.


SQL Server Clinic 

Work through your technical issues with top Microsoft technical support staff and get architectural guidance from the Azure CAT, SQL CAT, SQL Server Tiger, and CSS teams.  Upgrading your SQL Server 2005 systems?  This is a great place to get tips and tricks specific to your environment.


Focus Groups 

Don’t miss this great opportunity to provide product feedback, messaging suggestions, and all sorts of other great ideas directly to our engineering and marketing teams.
