DataWeekender loves trees

Reading Time: 3 minutes

DataWeekender loves trees and you can show your love of them this Valentine’s Day as well. By submitting a session to DataWeekender CU5 on the DataWeekender CU5 sessionize call for speakers page.

Because every time you submit a session to DataWeekender CU5 a tree gets planted through tree-nation. Thanks to an automated process that has been put in place. You can click the view the DataWeekender forest on the tree-nation site by clicking on the link or on the below image.

We believe that this promotes sustainability, and we really appreciate the great feedback that we have had so far about doing this. Such as the very touching quote below by Deepthi Goguri on LinkedIn.

As Data speakers grows, Data trees grow! As community drives, planet Earth thrives ❤️

Fellow DataWeekender organizer Mark Hayes setup the automation. In addition to this Mark has published a post about how to plant trees with the HTTP Connector in Power Automate and tree-nation. So that other event organizers can do the same if they so wish.

DataWeekender loves trees post on Valentines Day

I thought that publishing this DataWeekender post on Valentine’s Day was appropriate for two reasons.

First of all, because it shows how much DataWeekender loves trees.

Second reason is because the call for speakers for DataWeekender CU5 closes two months after this post is published. It closes on April 14 11:59PM Central European Summer Time (CEST), which is 10:59PM UTC and BST (UK time).

On a side note, in that post I list some of the topics that we have had sessions about before. Like ones relating to SQL Server. However, there are some topics relating to the Microsoft Data Platform we have yet to see submitted to DataWeekender.

For example, sessions relating to Azure Database for PostgreSQL or Azure Database for MySQL. Of course, we also welcome more diverse sessions that are related to the Microsoft Data Platform as well. We welcome sessions from speakers from all backgrounds and genders.

Final words

DataWeekender loves trees. In addition to encouraging people to submit to DataWeekender CU5 this Valentine’s Day I hope you are all showing those you love how much you care about them. Because that is very important.

With this in mind, I encourage you all to show somebody how you feel about them (if you have not already). Plus, if you are a potential speaker to submit a session to DataWeekender CU5 as well. So that you can help us plant more trees and have a chance to share your knowledge at the same time.

As always, if you have any queries or comments about this post feel free to reach out to me.
