Technology events for December 2020

On this snowy first day of December, I'm grateful for our little tech community here in Asheville and WNC.

December has traditionally had the fewest events, so it is nice to see some virtual offerings coming up this month, including a webinar on AI and content marketing tomorrow and a talk from Yvonne Marcus, "Your Agile Home: Making the Work of Parenting Visible," from the Asheville Women in Tech group. See below for details and links to register.

One of our community members, Amber Victoria Williams, has just launched a free course on Udemy, Slack: Getting Started Guide, as well as a paid offering, Slack: Business Bootcamp for Leaders. Check them out and spread the word to support our local tech creators.

Take care of each other.

Brian Bell presents. Are you interested in how columnstore indexes can improve performance queries as well as the reasons why you would or would not want to implement a columnstore index on your tables? This presentation discusses columnstore indexes, what they are, how they are structured, and when you should (or should not) implement them.
