Summit 2016 Wrap Up

This year, I was fortunate enough to be able to attend PASS Summit 2016.

As a first timer, I have a few post-Summit thoughts:

  1. Take hand sanitizer next time. Wound up having to buy some from a local pharmacy, and it was an easily packed item.
  2. Pack extra vitamin C + cold/flu prevention strategy. Again, I ran out, and had to buy some from a local place.
  3. Take an extra suitcase. Books, goodies, mementos for the kids all add up, and it would have been easier to pay for a second checked bag than throwing things away.
  4. Remember the kilt. It was awesome seeing the display of support for the Women In Technology lunch.
  5. Build in a weekend before or after to decompress, best spent in Seattle doing "stuff". I flew in on far too tight a timeline this time around, and missed seeing all the city had to offer due to an almost punishing schedule.
