I'm thrilled to be presenting once again at this year's PASS Summit, coming up in October in Seattle. I've got two regular sessions, one technical and one professional, as well as two community sessions. I hope you can join me. In case you don't know, the PASS Summit connects you with industry experts and THOUSANDS of global data professionals in a unique learning environment that empowers you with the practical knowledge you need to excel in your career. If you've never been before I strongly encourage you to consider attending. It can be a career-altering (and improving) experience (see this post from Allen White.)

SentryOne has a deep history with PASS Summit going back to 2004. (My own personal connections to PASS, as one of the original nine founders and president of the organization from 2004-2008, are well known). As active members of the community, SentryOne continues to both teach and learn – deploying the valuable, ongoing conversations with the data community into the features and new products we offer. It has been an amazing partnership and we are proud to again be a sponsor for this summit.

In addition, the team at SentryOne is presenting another Performance Bootcamp, a full day PASS Summit pre-con on October 31st. If you're a user of our products, I strongly encourage you to attend so that you learn all the ins and outs of the SentryOne product offering.

Our commitment to providing a diverse workplace led to our involvement with Women in Technology (WIT) events at PASS Summit, and the WIT Virtual Group. Learn more about the Heather Ritchie keynote, and WIT luncheon we are sponsoring, here.

Our team will be providing live demos at the Summit and opportunities to ask questions and talk with our software engineers – stop by the exhibit hall (Booth 216) and say hello!
