Do I need to stay at a Holiday Inn Express to get accepted?
I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express when I spoke at SQL Saturday #298 in Jacksonville, FL.
Seriously, I've spoken at THIRTEEN SQL Saturdays so far and to my local user group a handful of times.
It's a good feeling to say you've submitted for PASS Summit.
The response when you are not accepted needs to provide more information.
How did I score?
Where did I rank among the other abstracts?
Did I just miss?
I've played sports all my life. Sometimes, I've tried out for teams and didn't make the cut. It's a character building experience when you don't make the team but without additional feedback I've got nothing to build on.
I simply want to know how I scored and what the cutoff was.
Congratulations to all of you who did get accepted!
