The SQL Server community is known for its welcoming acceptance of everyone, regardless of their experience or background. The SQL Server family actively reach out to help others and bring folks together.
A great example of that is the LGBTQ Meetup organized by Andy Mallon (@amtwo.) Whether you identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, questioning, queer, ally, friend, or any other label, take a break from all the database talk, and hang out with some accepting friends for a cocktail on Thursday, November 8th.
Register here free, but as long as you’re attending, take a moment to consider donating to The Trevor Project. They provide crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) young people.
To encourage your donations, we’re matching the first $5,000. Read more at Andy’s announcement, and I’ll see you at the Butterfly Lounge on Thursday night!
