Wylie’s been the presenter at two recent evening meetups I attended – the first, a Chicago .NET User Group event regarding SQL Server 2016 technology enhancements for developers, and the second, an overview of tabular models in SQL 2016 presented by the Chicago Suburban SQL Server User Group. Wylie’s balance of ~25% lecture to ~75% demonstration is a smart format for an evening meetup. At both of these events, he led with a concise overview of topics he’d address, followed by a well paced demo of each feature, fluidly transitioning from one point to the next. He handles the room well, fielding questions along the way, eliciting plenty of audience participation. I’ve enjoyed Wylie’s events, and look forward to the next.
