I’m pleased to announce that I have selected an initial board of directors for the SQL Saturday Foundation. I’m honored to be a part of this group:
- Andy Warren (b | t) – USA
- Carlos Lopez (b | t) – LATAM
- Heidi Hasting (t) – APAC
- Johan Brattås (t) – EUR
- Stacia Varga (b | t) – USA
- Steph Locke (b | t) – EUR
- Steve Jones (b | t) – USA
- Taiob Ali (b | t) – APAC/USA
- Dr. Victoria Holt (b | t) – EUR
I think this is a diverse group, representing many different views on our industry and the world, and I hope you agree. Please join me in congratulating them.
This was a very hard decision, and in keeping with the spirit of disclosure, I’ll write a bit about the process I followed, without disclosing other names.
This has moved far slower than I would have liked, mostly my own fault with other distractions in life causing delays. Things are starting to move now, and I will start to get the board together to begin setting the path forward. I have avoided making too many decisions so far, so we have a lot of work to do.
I hope many of you organizers and local leaders will start thinking about holding virtual events this year and look forward to physical ones in 2022.
I am still looking for a suitable place we can publicly discuss things as a group, without others posting within our discussion. I will ensure there is a place for public comment on our work, but any working group needs a way to discuss things among themselves, even in public. Suggestions for how to do this are welcome.
