[EN] Save the Dates. 29 Dates… for SharePoint Community Events

Holiday is almost over. Some of you probably will spend last two weeks of August on Holiday, but generally speking forom September kids and from October students will back to classes. So adults will have a little bit more time for their education. In previous post I wrote about SQL Server Community Events. Here is time for SharePoint – my second important toping for daily workd. In this post I want listing all interesting (in my personal opinion) events till last day of the year, events focused for Wide Wild SQL World. I will focus on EMEA area with one or two extention for United States. Let see the dates, events and places. In a little different form than in previous post – because number of events is significantly lower, I change the structure.

[PL] Zmiany personalne w GITCA

Jak zawsze z upływem roku fiskalnego Microsoft, następują zmiany personalne w organizacjach wspierających społeczności. W Professional Association of SQL Server {PASS} takie zmiany nastapiły na wiosnę, teraz przyszedł czas na zmiany w Global IT Community Association {GITCA}. Jak niektórzy z Was wiedzą pracuję na rzecz GITCA (wcześniej Culminis) od mniej więcej dwóch lat, zaś od lipca ubiegłego roku pełniłem rolę Director-at-Large. Nie był to lekki rok, ale dziś już moge powiedzieć, że rozpoczynający się jutro rok, będzie jeszcze ciekawszy. Poniżej przedstawiam wyniki wyborów jakie obowiązują od pierwszego lipca w GITCA, w wyniku których zostałem wyróżniony pozycją Vice-Chair:

Jak widać jest jeszcze trochę wolnych miejsc, więc jeśli ktoś miałby chęć spróbować pracy na rzecz społeczności w dość międzynarodowym środowisku… zapraszam :)

[EN] Less is More… or More is Less?

I hope that Steve Hogarth don’t kill me on our next meeting (because it’s Marillion’s album title).

More? More opportunity, more responsibility, more jobs, more ideas, more….

Less? Less time, less holidays, less lazy days…

On last SQLDay 2011 conference (The Annual Conference of Polish SQL Server User Group) based on the unwritten tradition our group changed the President. Respecting decicion of the leaders, I ‘m new President of PLSSUG for 2011/2012 period (no longer that next SQLDay Conference). I’m happy, glad and afraid. Happy – because I love work for the Community; glad – because is the proof that my job is good; afraid – because it’s big responsibility and lots of work front of me. I hope that Polish SQL Server User Group will be better and more recognize after one year from now.

Is enough? Is not!

I’m also working for Global IT Community Association (GITCA) as member of Technical team, where I’m responsible for shared , hosted SharePoint environment. Next to this work since 1st July last year I was member of GITCA EMEA Board hold position of Director-at-Large. I’m still member of EMEA Board, but I was nominated for new position: Vice-Chair. Hip Hip Hooraayyy! What it means in fact? More work, new ideas, plans, jobs and projects for GITCA in Europe. We must be better, we must provide better solutions, service and help for our community users.

Next year will be very exciting year. Our motto is my motto. In fact I’ve two mottos…
