Last year 5,000 data-geeks have attended the PASS Summit which has become the landmark event for the entire Microsoft Data Platform. Take a look at numbers of the year 2015, that are shown in the following pictures, they are really impressive, aren't they?
Every year more and more IT Professionals, Technicians, Analysts and Data Scientists consider this event as a unique opportunity to: connect to other people that have the same passion you have, share your experience and the problems you face for your job and learn more and more about the Microsoft Data Platform for choose the best technology to win the challenges of the market.
