I think we should have a discussion about topic.
First, the future is more data. SQL Server is just one place it is put. We need reflect the needs of our customers and prospective clients.
How do we get there?
We do SQL Server now and add others annually. Postgres, MySQL, Oracle and Vertica have strong futures. This allows us, as data professionals, to bring in new people and build richer networks with all these types which is better for our clients. The new motto should be "We solve data platform problems"
Second, Unicode needs to take a higher position in whatever we do.
Third, we need some type of credentialing/badging system in whatever we do.
Fourth, can we start with On24 sessions? I know Redgate but I don't really know all your people and products. I don't mind having warm-up sessions to understand Redgate. I guess if your business doesn't grow, then this community definitely won't exist, right?
Honestly, I would rather have one big event annually somewhere that's a week than weekends of lectures. Webinars work for me but I want more access to skills building & problem activities.
