I’ll be speaking at the IT Pro Camp in Orlando on Saturday January 21, 2012. Hope to see you there. It appears that the event is set up largely like a SQL Saturday, which piqued my curiosity. But it has broader appeal, hence the “IT Pro” moniker. I submitted 2 sessions for the event and the organizer asked me to pick my 1st choice, which some SQL Saturday organizers don’t do. (Thanks!) So I will be presenting on “Networking for IT Pros”. This will be the 1st time I present this session, which is about half in person networking and half LinkedIn networking do’s and don’ts. I’ve really tried to include my lessons learned and what works and what doesn’t, as I have learned a lot about networking over the past 3 years.
If all works out well, I intend to submit the abstract or a variant of it toSQL Rally 2012. The one thing I’m wrestling with at this point is whether to focus on in person networking or on the LinkedIn piece. I won’t know that until the presentation is done and how much content I end up with. It’s about 80% done as I write this.
I’m also looking forward going back to Florida and seeing some of the great people in the Orlando area that I’ve made friends with over the past year. Can’t wait!
