I enjoy the privilege and honor of participating in the SQL Server Community alongside many who read this blog. And I know from past experience that some reading this post will make the switch from consumers-only in our community to sharers and consumers one day.
For my part, I consume more than I contribute. I am thankful to the many folks who contribute with their blog posts, tweets, social media posts, YouTube videos, podcasts, and other media. I enjoy personal interaction most of all and have thoroughly enjoyed conversations with folks in the community at SQL Saturdays!
I learn way more than I teach.
Beyond the SQL Server Community
Many in the SQL Server Community serve their local communities in civil capacities. Some volunteer as first-responders and fire-fighters, for example. I know one person who serves on the local school board. Several are active in churches, charities, and religious organizations; and many dedicate time to local schools and/or alternative educational activities such as homeschool organizations.
I’m honored to be part of this community and to serve alongside all of you every day. We in the SQL Server Community participate in an awesome community!
