Seven days and counting… For the past eighteen years, thousands of data tech professionals would travel to the PASS Summit conference held somewhere in the US, paying for airfare, hotel and conference admission. This year, the PASS organization (Professional Association for SQL Server) is rebooted as the PASS Data Community, led by Red-Gate Software, and the virtual summit is free to attend online. Hundreds of speakers will deliver training sessions and informative lectures on a variety of important data tools and industry skills. This year, I am speaking about Paginated Reports in the Power BI service. I will reflect on the progression of SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) through past PASS presentations and then talk about how Paginated Reports integrates with the Power BI platform.
Two of my colleagues from 3Cloud are also presenting at the PASS Community Summit next week. There is just no good reason not to attend the summit his year, so register and make time to attend selected sessions. To reach the global audience, some of the keynotes and sessions are presented live. Others have recorded content followed by a live Q&A chat with the presenter.
May I remind you again that the online summit is FREE, so participate, volunteer and attend! There is so much to learn from world-renowned experts. PASS Community Summit speakers are the subject matter experts who write the books, teach the classes, provide expert-level consulting and actually develop many of these products and Azure services.
Data On The Road
As we are traveling in the Data Bus, I have had the opportunity to interview server data community leaders and conference speakers, including those highlighted in this post. Here, Leslie and Andie talk about their topics and passion for data and community. Watch all of the interviews and follow us as we visit conferences and data community leaders in the Data Bus.
