I work freelance, often outside of any major city here in the UK, so I find it difficult to attend during the week. During the weekend I have other commitments (family & hockey mainly). Whilst I would like to see more people face-to-face, I do find that those of us who only have an online presence in the community are made as welcome as those who meet face-to-face. Obviously, when you meet people in person there is an opportunity of a more of a intimate bonding, however, it doesn't necessarily mean that it will be completely absent otherwise...and for that I thank you all.

I'm not much of a networker. I should work on that. But I've gotta say that since I started developing in SQL a few years ago, I have found this community to be extremely generous with their time and knowledge. With almost every question I've had, I've been able to find where users have already freely shared about the topic. It's a most impressive community!

I only discovered #sqlfamily (the hashtag, and the virtual family) last year, but I'm glad I did, and love being part of the group. I am presenting for the first time at an upcoming SQL Saturday, and am looking forward to making lots of new friends and acquaintances.

This year I made it a priority to get to a few conferences (SQL in the City, SQL Saturday, CodeStock), and they were all beneficial. Plus I enjoyed the time I spent meeting new people. Sometimes I learn new things, and sometimes I find that i'm already doing something right (or as best as can be done). I hope I can make it back to some of these next year.

Beatrix, where are you based? There should be a user group near you. There only about once a month, so it's not much of a time commitment unless you decide to get more involved.

I'm in London. Thanks for that; I think I signed up for one of those yesterday. I signed up for a few! It's a bit intimidating, but I'm sure the first time is the hardest. You all seem to get a lot out of it.


It is intimidating, but most of us are just regular people. Just excuse yourself, say hi and tell someone your name. Tell them it's your first time and they'll take care of you.

It's definitely nice to touch people online.

I get busy as well, and rarely attend the groups out here, but I make an effort once or twice a year to take time out of my schedule.

Why don't you organize one? It's costly and not efficient for someone outside of the area to do it. However, I'm sure there's an MS office in Mexico City. There's been a SQL Saturday there. It doesn't take that much to organize a meeting or even an event.

I'm going to do it. I'm also going to check back that Nick H and BWFC go to theirs .
