I’ve always wanted to go to Australia, in fact we have a trip planned for Martin’s 60th birthday in a couple of years. But with all that’s happened in this social distancing world, we’re not sure if it will even be possible by then. So, when SQL Saturday Brisbane (986) decided to go virtual, I jumped at the opportunity to attend and possibly even present. I submitted my sessions and crossed all my fingers and toes. I am excited and honored to announce that I’ve been selected to speak at this event on May 30, 2020!
I will be delivering my Intro to Azure Data Catalog session. I really like this session, so many people have no idea that it exists, let alone what it can do for you. To be able to see the light go on in their eyes during this session is the absolute best. Even though I won’t be able to see their faces, because it’s a virtual event, I am still super excited.
Join me “down under” for what will be a fantastic event with 28 different sessions being offered by some really great presenters. There’s still time to register.
With all our in-person events cancelled for the foreseeable future, I was so excited to find that some community folks are not sitting back and waiting for the social distancing to end in order to have a technical conference. There is a new virtual technical conference created by some wonderful community folks in Europe, called Data Weekender.
I am so excited and humbled to have been selected to speak at this conference. I will be presenting my Data Types Do Matter session on Saturday, May 2, 2020.
There are so many great sessions being offered by so many brilliant community people, take a look at the schedule and see for yourself.
If you’re not too busy washing the car in the drive or removing gum from that tangled mess of toddler hair, come join us. I’d love to “see” you. There is still time to register, so what are you waiting for? Register now!
I am a #DataWeekender Supporter!
I am happy to announce that I will be speaking at SQL Saturday Raleigh this Saturday, April 27, 2019. I have been part of the organizing team for this event for the past few years so have never been able to speak (those of you who are fellow organizers know why!). This year we had a last minute cancellation of an afternoon session, so I decided to step up and fill the slot.
I will be presenting my What is Power BI? session at 2:30pm. If you’re in Raleigh with some time on your hands, stop by and say, “Hello”, I’d love to see you. You can also check out some other great sessions as well, we still have registration slots available.
I am honored to have been recommended by a colleague and selected as a speaker for the Triad Developer’s Conference in Winston-Salem on March 10, 2017.
The Triad Developer’s Conference is a low cost one day learning event put on by a myriad of local user groups in the Piedmont Triad area of North Carolina. I attended the inaugural conference two years ago and it was fantastic. So excited to be a speaker this year.
If you are in the Winston-Salem area on Friday, March 10, 2017, stop and say “Hi”. I’d love to see you.
