Notes From The April 2014 oPASS Meeting

Andy Warren, 2014-04-21

  • Same room but different seating arrangement. Instead of separate table pushed some together, used the space better and more a feeling of being in a meeting and less of “islands”
  • My first presentation on learning went well for a first time out. Hard to tell if it hit home or not.
  • Second presentation on credit cards went well, audience seemed engaged, though I managed to not explain what PCI the acronym meant – ouch. Easy to get immersed and speak in acronyms
  • Maybe more sensitive to it since I was speaking, but saw more new faces than usual, all drawn to learn about credit cards. Now if we can just get them to come back!

Speaking at Community Events – More Thoughts

Last week I posted Speaking at Community Events – Time to Raise the Bar?, a first cut at talking about to what degree we should require experience for speakers at events like SQLSaturday as well as when it might be appropriate to add additional focus/limitations on the presentations that are accepted. I’ve got a few more thoughts on the topic this week, and I look forward to your comments.
