GroupBy has been in a bit of a transition over the last few months. In this blog post Brent Ozar outlined that the future of GroupBy was up in the air, so a few #SQLFamily volunteers opted to keep this going. It’s a great, free resource for community members to increase their skills and perfect their speaking chops. It’s free, and it’s amazing.
We’re happy to announce that GroupBy will remain a free, volunteer-run event, staffed with SQL Community volunteers.
Meet your new GroupBy organization committee:

He is a Microsoft Certified IT Professional, Microsoft MVP, and PASS volunteer. He speaks at PASS, local SQL user groups in Atlanta, and leads the PowerShell Virtual Chapter. He figured he didn’t have enough to do with all that, so he’s come to help grow speaker talent at GroupBy

She owns Paper Sword B2B, a marketing agency that helps data companies tell their story and generate leads.

We’re working hard to get our feet underneath GroupBy and will have an announcement later this week with the date for the next event and when voting will open for the event. We want to thank Brent so much for giving this event back to the community. We’re going to work hard to do right by it.
