A place for my thoughts and experiences the Microsoft Data Platform

Submitted Abstract Feedback – My 2 cents

"WOW. That's exactly the feedback I would have loved to have for ALL my proposals in the past year. And not only for PASS Summit". No more and no less this is what I thought after having received the mail with all the feedback from the review committee of my PASS Summit proposals. Yeah, sure, I thought it in Italian, but for your convenience, I translated it in English. Being a written translation you cannot also see the typical Italian gestures related to the "WOW" phase, but you can get nice sense of that here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M0n4Vw6twKo (at minute 0:41 J and 1:16 J)

Now, beside this J, I encourage everyone who submitted session abstract for PASS Summit to ask for detailed feedback, as explained here:

After reading the feedbacks, I already have several ideas on how to improve submitted abstract of sessions that have been rejected, and I'm sure the changes I'm going to do will help to increase the chances to have the session accepted in future. After all, it's all about being able to communicate to others why you think your session is useful and how it can help people in their work. And since we all have different way of seeing things, the more feedback I can have on how people get and understand my submission, the better for me, since I can fine-tune the abstract for the audience.

Good work, PASS.
