Looking back at my 2016 Community Engagement

2016 was one of my most productive years in terms of blogging (34 posts), public speaking at several SqlSaturdays as well as UG’s (meeting some great people out there), community engagement and session selection committee for SqlSaturday, SqlNexus and Pass Summit. I certainly hope to improve my efforts and engagement in 2017, but I am also well aware, that this might just well be the maximum of what I can squeeze in, having a family w/ three wonderful kids to look after as well for the time being. They do take a lot after me, so I also hope to introduce some of them as co-programmers on select projects the next year.

A few years back…

Here is the list of my blog posts from the year 2016, where I also managed to complete this challenge that Tim Ford (b|l|t) put out in January 2016 as well as participate in a couple of tsql2sdays (and host one too).
