I am proud to contribute to a number of worldwide technical communities!
First, SQL Saturday is a free one-day training event for SQL Server professionals. They are popping up all over the country, and during the year, at least one event is occurring almost every Saturday. These events feature local and nationally-known speakers, and provide a variety of high-quality technical sessions. I spend a number of my Saturdays attending and speaking at these events. I also speak at a number of SQL Server User Groups. Speaking at these various events expressed just some of the ways I feel I should give back to the community, and I’m honored to be selected to speak at these events to share my knowledge with those who want to learn.
Virtualization is one of my favorite topics. I speak about virtualization and SQL Server virtualization at a number of VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V events around the country. Below is a list of the SQL Saturday, SQL Server, and virtualization events that I have spoken at or will be speaking to.
Please contact me if I can help with a presentation our with your local SQL Server Users Group chapter!
