I’m speaking tomorrow evening at Michiana PASS. What’s my topic? Performance, of course! Actually, it’s about querying partitioned tables. Quickly. Because that’s how I roll.
But that’s not my point today.
Like any good technical community, the success of PASS doesn’t come from the top. Local Groups are the heart of PASS. If SQL Server is relevant to your job, become a part of your PASS Local Group. Or start one, if necessary. Share what you know, encourage your peers, and contribute to the community.
And if public speaking is something you wish you could do better, presenting in front of your Local Group is a safe way to dip your toe in those waters. I present a technical session about once a year to IndyPASS. In fact, I’ll be back in September. I’m also now starting to branch out to other Local Groups, like Michiana, to help them grow. As much as I enjoy taking part in SQLSaturdays, I think I might like this more.
