I stumbled upon ODTUG in the spring of 2103 when I was “Googling” how to do some such thing in SQL and I found the content link to past webinars and the tech search of their content libraries, that was for paid members only. Shortly afterwards I gave myself the gift of membership and have never looked back.
In the five years since joining, I have played many roles at the best user’s group on the planet:
- Began as an abstract reviewer back in 2015
- Leadership Program graduate (2nd class) and Program Coordinator (2015)
- Database Community Contributor
- Philadelphia Area ODTUG Meetup Host
- Database Track Lead, Kscope 18 & 19
- Kscope Community Day Volunteer
- Presenter, Kscope 16 & 17
And now I’m asking for your vote to get to the next level – a Board position where I can continue to serve our membership in a more vigorous role. If you were a Kscope 16 attendee, you may have seen my presentation with Chet Justice (@oraclenerd), where we extolled upon the folly that writing bad sql creates. Or you may have stumbled into my co-presentation with Justin Biard (@icodealot) in Chicago at Kcsope17 where we shared our knowledge of Regular Expressions and what they can do to make your life easier. Or perhaps you attended the very first Kscope Newcomer’s Reception, initiated by the fabulous 2015-2016 Leadership Program Class I was privileged to lead that year?
I am humbled and grateful for all of the ways ODTUG has allowed me to grow as a leader and as a developer, and will continue to give back to this organization that has done so much for me. If elected I will continue to work hard for all of you. Full ODTUG members can vote here.
Thank you for your consideration!
