What SQL Server Pros Can Get By Giving SQL Server DBA Professionals Global Marketing
Give and Receive As the holidays approach, remember what SQL Server professionals can get by giving. SQL Server folks are by nature a generous bunch: we share our knowledge reflexively to help out our fellow pros locally and globally. If you have ever found a solution to a vexing problem by watching a SQL Server guru’s breakdown of a database fragmentation then you are a beneficiary of our communities giving spirit. 2 SQLDBApros
Give Camps • We don’t reserve that generosity just for fellow techies – as evidenced by Give Camps across the nation. • Give Camp brings together technology pros for intensive weekend sessions that provide solutions for under-resources charities and non-profits. • Wish lists are submitted & reviewed and then everyone gets together for a weekend, rolls up their sleeves, and builds finished solutions by the event’s conclusion. 3 SQLDBApros
Give Camps If you haven't participated in a Give Camp there are three reasons to do it: 1. You’ll help people. 2. You’ll get to learn and improve in a uniquely and intensely cooperative environment that you might not experience otherwise. 3. It’s exhilarating. This is what drew Colorado-based SQL Server developer, Gabe Villa, to become an organizer of Give Camp for the past 3 years. The most recent saw 20 volunteers serve 5 charities that wouldn’t have otherwise found infrastructure, budget, or talent to meet their needs. 4 SQLDBApros

They also get the learning and skills boost equivalent to a miniconference, as well as a way to work fluidly and creatively. SQLDBApros
“There are no bosses, no management – teams come together organically to solve problems.” – Villa SQLDBApros
Give Back From SQL Saturdays to Give Camps, chances are there is somebody out there who needs your knowledge. This holiday season is a great time to reflect on how to share it – and be amazed at what we get back when we do. 11 SQLDBApros
