PASS Data Community Summit 2021 is the relaunch of PASS Summit, the largest gathering of data professionals focused on the Microsoft platform.
Building on 21 years as the event to attend if you want to stay on top of rapidly changing trends in data, Redgate is hosting this year’s Summit as a free online conference for the data platform community to connect, share, and learn with thousands of their peers.
Attendees will be looking to hear from industry-leading experts, make connections that advance their careers, and discover cutting-edge products and services from across the data platform ecosystem.
PASS Data Community Summit 2021 is the year’s largest gathering of data platform professionals. Join us for this free online Summit and connect, share, and learn with 1000s of your peers from the global data platform community.
To build inclusivity and global connections, activities will be accessible across all time zones and sessions will be available free after the Summit.
You can submit a maximum of:
1x Pre-conference Session
3x General and/or Half-day Sessions
3x Lightning Talks*
*preference will be given to speakers that are new to presenting
In order to sustain the high-quality session content the community expects to see at Summit, speakers should offer fresh content on the latest trends and technologies.
Based on the community survey, which received almost 1,000 responses, SQL Server topped the list of priority learning, followed closely by Power BI, and Cloud and Azure.
Database Administration, Professional Development, Machine Learning, Business Intelligence, Data Platform, Data Science, and Data Governance all topped the list in topic suggestions.
Our plan for this year’s content includes three themes that are applicable across all tracks of the conference:
Back to Basics
Sessions focused on the fundamentals, not necessarily entry level, but practical learning to help community members solve and improve day-to-day tasks.
Reach for the Clouds
Sessions focused on all things Cloud – content that shows attendees how to migrate and modernize their data stack.
Sessions focused on supporting community members in advancing their career as data professionals with advanced topics covering both technology and professional development.
Conference tracks include Analytics, Architecture, Data Management, Development, Professional Development, and Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DE&I).
The online conference platform is almost confirmed, but until that time, what we can tell you is this:
