PASS Summit 2017

Today was another good day at work.

Since returning from summit, I spent a rigorous amount of time developing slides & demos to share what I learned, attempting to deliver on my pact with my CIO and Director.

Well, that came true today in full-circle & the feedback was amazing!



This is a summary of the sessions I attended at PASS Summit 2017. Out of the week-long conference, I put together these slides to summarize the conference and share with you what I learned. The slides are about the sessions that I found had the most value and include demos I personally developed and tested, alike the speakers at the conference.


  • Schedule
  • Keynotes
  • Session notes and takeaways
  • Demos
  • Follow-up resources
  • Raffle

  • Power BI
  • Security (Encryption / Dynamic Data Masking / Row-Level-Security)
  • Cosmos DB
  • Predictive Analytics (Machine Learning and AI)



Special thx to the folks that were extremely helpful throughout my journey and put up with all my emails and questions.

Thank you,
