SQLpeople was truly Unique and inspiring 

For over 20 years I have been very active in the Technology community. At this point in time I thought I had seen it all. Yet an event comes along like no other SQLPeople in New Your City.

This event was all about the people. To quote the  SQLPeople site 

SQLPeople is about inspiring database professionals to challenge “Why?” with “Why not?”

It’s about the context of what has been done, understanding what can be done, and focusing the vision for what will be done.

It’s about thinking and engineering, imagination and innovation. Most of all, it’s about community.

The event accomplished this and a lot more. I came away from the event thinking about a lot of things in a completely different way. I am not surprised by this fact as I got to know the many people active behind the scenes. People like Matt Velic, Brian Moran, Andy Leonard, Melissa Demsak and Robert Perl to name a few. They really care and that carries through the whole event. They have created a sense of community. A community I am proud to be part of.

As I sat through the Many presentations...

Telecommuting and the Virtual Office: Making the Case to Convince your Boss, Robert Perl

SQL Someday, Thomas Larock

Navigating the New Job Market, Michael Coles

Professional Services 2.0, Brian Moran

Finding Balance, Steve Jones

Big Data, BI, Big Deal!, Andrew Brust 

DBA to CEO, Myself.

Each one of the presenters were excellent and more importantly made you think. The Master of Ceremonies was Andy Leonard and he was able to bring it all together. Add to the fact that everyone there was giving up a saturday made this a very special event. 

My hat goes off to the Vendors who help sponsor this event.
