Countdown to PASS Summit 2012 – 3 to Go – Setting My Schedule

3 11 2012

Three days to go. I need to get my schedule sorted out, how about you. What influences your schedule? Since this is my schedule, here are some of the things that influence my schedule choices:

1. When do I speak? J I have to make it to those sessions for sure!
2. Current technology interests
.  a. BigData and Hadoop
.  b. Azure
.  c. Business Intelligence
3. Volunteer activity – I have volunteered to help out in the Community Zone. Come by for a visit.
4. Speaker – if I end up with a choice, I will also look at the speaker choices as well. This is really more of a tie breaker for me.

So, here is my tentative schedule for the week (I reserve the right to change my mind).
