Pragmatic Works Foundation Class Introduction

, 2010-02-09

You may have noticed a flux of new blog post entires yesterday from a group of people talking about the Pragmatic Works Foundation.  This is a great group of people that are new to IT and learning the basics of SQL Server.

Per our website:

The Pragmatic Works Foundation was created to find passionate people who are interested in joining the technology field but cannot make the financial investments needed for training and hardware. Working with our job placement partners our goal is to place all candidates who complete training with a new career in technology.

This weeks class we have 7 people.  Please join me in welcoming this great group to BIDN!

If anyone is interested in joining our next class visit www.pragmaticworks.com/foundation to sign up.  We're are always looking for people that are interested in becoming mentors to our current students so please contact me if you would like to mentor one of these students through things they may run into in the IT field.

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.
