One of my professional activities that I am most proud of is my involvement in the SQL Server MVP Deep Dives books, Volumes One and Two. Over 50 MVPs each wrote a chapter on a topic that they were excited about, and all the royalties were donated to charity. We have been able to send tens of thousands of dollars to War Child and Operation Smile.
Below is a photo of the book signing for Volume Two at the PASS conference in 2011. (I’m in the lower right corner.)
Here are a couple of photos of me speaking at classes at conferences.
Next is a picture of me and the other speakers during a four-city Swedish roadshow. I went further north than I’d ever been, to the city of Umeå
One of my favorite places to visit is Sacramento, California! They have a great user group and my oldest bestest friend lives there. (We’ve been friends for 33 years.) I speak at their User Group whenever I’m in town teaching for ISI, and have spoken at both of their SQL Saturday events!
If you have any photos of me at conferences or other events, please let me know if you’d be willing to let me post them here! Thanks…
