Need a Remote User Group Speaker?

If your user group needs a remote speaker, especially over the next couple of months, I’d be happy to step in. Check out my list of presentations. If that didn’t scare you off and you still want to get ahold of me, hit me up on Twitter, LinkedIn, e-mail (if you know the address), or put your contact details in a trap cleverly designed to look like a SQL Saturday.

It gets me every time.

Or Just Watch Our Group

Also, if you are a user group attendee jonesing for a bit more content and missing your user group over the next couple of months, come check out the Triangle SQL Server User Group. We’re going to be remote-only through April, but we meet three times a month and broadcast nearly all of our user group meetings on Twitch. You don’t need an account to watch, but if you want to follow and chat, registration there is free.
