The SQL Server community never ceases to amaze me. The number of people that are willing to take time out from their jobs and families to volunteer is especially impressive.
I’ve had the good fortune to be able to volunteer for the Program Committe this year. My job is to pull together special projects and whatever other slave work Allen thinks up for me. I’ve had a number of volunteers that have put great work into our current project. This project has multiple steps and has required a ton of coordination between the volunteers – but it is all coming together. It’s something that’s been needed for awhile and now it’s going to be a reality. I’d name names, but I know that I’d forget someone. So thank you to everyone that’s helped out.
It’s not just me, though. My husband, Tim Edwards, in the process of re-starting the Performance VC. He had mentioned the need for volunteers through our blog, Twitter and Blythe (Blog/Twitter) put out a call for volunteers on the PASS blog. He’s been overwhelmed at the number of people that have asked to help out.
