[From SQL Server Magazine]

I’ve been involved in the SQL Server community since 1990. I’ve played many leadership roles in various SQL Server conferences since the late 1990s, including being a member of the founding board of directors for PASS and acting as the SQL Server Connections conference chair for about eight years. I’ve also been a speaker at dozens of SQL Server events around the world over the past decade. So I’ve seen a lot in the conference and event space. There’s a lot that I love about conferences, but there are also some aspects of traditional conferences that I don’t love quite as much. I often wondered when and how virtual conferences of various kinds would eventually take off. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think traditional “in-person” conferences will ever go away, but for some time it’s seemed inevitable that technology and user appetites would evolve to the point that more virtualization and remote content delivery would eventually take root in the conference space.
