Preparing My Community Talks for 2021

New & Updated Talks for the Community

With 2020 in the rear view mirror its time to reflect on another year of experience gained as a consultant designing and delivering data platform solutions for my customers in this every changing world of technology. I’ve previously confessed that my job is my hobby, so its great to be able to translate this knowledge (battle scares) into sessions that I can share with the wider community to help shape the direction of the industry and support the next generation. That said, I’ve settled on the following talk titles that I’d like to deliver over the coming year.

I’ve broken these down into 4 main groups, to help with the understanding and context for the talks:

  • Introductions
  • Guiding Principals
  • How To
  • Complete Training

I love public speaking, especially when the content is about my favourite Azure resources 🙂

If you’d like to see any of this content at your event, conference, meetup etc please don’t hesitate to get in touch. Or, if you’d like a session on something not listed, I’m open to new ideas.
