If You’re Not Sure About Submitting an Abstract

The 2013 PASS Summit Call for Speakers ends in less than 48 hours. If you’re on the fence about whether or not to submit an abstract for the Summit (or any other event, for that matter), here’s what I say:


Get started here. Time’s running out!

UPDATE:┬áIf you’re having trouble getting your ideas in writing, try using one of these submitted abstracts as a template. I have no idea if they’ll get chosen but they’re very well written.

Kendra Little: How to Tell When Storage is a Problem

Brent Ozar: Why is SQL Server Slow RIGHT NOW?

and here’s one of mine: The Missing Manual for Data-Driven Subscriptions

Good luck!

    Wow, thanks man! I’m honored that you’d suggest mine as a template.

    I’m betting it all on that session this year. That’s the only one I submitted – I’m absolutely wild and crazy about that topic, and I really, really hope it gets picked. I’m probably an idiot for putting all my eggs in that basket, but that’s the session I really wanna show off in the fall. It’ll be so much fun.

    Good luck on yours too, man!

      Thanks, Brent! Your abstract has the key ingredients: it relates to the reader’s pain, explains in concise detail what will be discussed, and tells them the benefits they’ll enjoy after the session.
