I'm speaking at PASS Data Community Summit 2022

Looking forward to speaking in Seattle at next week's PASS Data Community Summit by Redgate. I'll be speaking both as a representative of my role on the Microsoft Database Docs team and as a data professional. 

On Wednesday Nov 16, you'll find me in the main exhibit hall in the Microsoft Booth Theater (#217) giving a presentation on contributing to Microsoft Docs, at 530pmPT. Hope to see you there. If prizes are available to give away, you know I'll give em up.

On Thursday afternoon, Christine and I are presenting together on a topic that is important to us, Ethics in Modern Data. I bring my years as a data professional and Christine brings her experience and a Masters degree in Organization Psychology, combined with our passion for history, civil rights, and technology. We'll be discussing issues ripped from the news headlines and in history. These will frame a discussion about bias in data collection and analysis, and our responsibilities as data professionals. I hope we spark your interest in these important topics that shape our data industry.

On Friday morning, I'll be presenting a full hour on Database Docs. We'll discuss how they work behind the scenes and how you can contribute to open-source docs via GitHub. This will also be an interactive feedback panel for the entire Docs platform inside Microsoft Learn. Hope to see you there, inspire you to contribute to the Docs that the entire data community uses daily, and answer any questions.
