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 and infrastructure 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 and cloud are two of my favorite topics related to SQL Server. I speak about virtualization, cloud and SQL Server virtualization / cloud enablement at a number of technical events around the country. Below is a list of the events that I have spoken at or will be speaking to.
