We are proud to have 8 Linchpin People speaking at PASS Summit 2016.

In case you have never heard of PASS Summit, it’s the annual conference for PASS, the professional association for “data professionals throughout the world who use the Microsoft data platform.” The first PASS Summit was held in 1999 in Chicago but then it was called COMPASS, and Linchpin People founder and CSO Brian Moran was there. Thank you, PASS community, to all those who have made PASS Summit possible this year and over the years past.
