PASS Summit 2016 Wrap-Up!

Posted by on November 8th, 2016

A look back at PASS Summit 2016

We were leaving Seattle inspired. PASS Summit 2016 has ended two weeks ago and we are already looking forward to what is next in 2017. By the way, organizers welcome you to register for PASS Summit 2017.

PASS Summit is the world’s largest conference for Microsoft SQL Server, BI, and data professionals where participants have a great chance to attend a wide variety of technical sessions presented by industry-leading experts and world-recognized specialists. In addition, it is a great chance to have a face-to-face talk with developers from leading software development companies and get the latest news from the vendors.

It was the second time for the Devart team and we really enjoyed the event this year! We were more than happy to see some familiar faces and meet new people this year. We came back with so many new ideas and information on so many fronts! Therefore, we are ready to dive into work!

A short trip to Oregon

Did you know that several days before PASS Summit starts, another great event takes place! This year, we also had a great chance to sponsor and attend SQLSaturday Oregon. It was a great pleasure to talk to all participants and present our new features and SQL tools to the community. We made friends and gather invaluable experience! We are looking forward to meeting you next year!

Outdoor activities

Breathtaking nature is a good reason to stay in Seattle for a couple additional days and chill out after the intense week. Washington is one of the most beautiful states in the United Sates with rustic charm and beauty. You can find the Rainier Mountain and incredible geological wonders. There are also multiple large stretches of natural beauty, including Olympic National Park and Mount Rainier National Park. For a breathtaking sight, visit the Ruby beach and Deception Pass.
