  PRESENTATION:
Becoming a Master by Giving it All Away With Michael Wall

DESCRIPTION
It has been said that novices absorb knowledge like a sponge, intermediates hoard it for themselves, and masters just simply give it away.
The community spirit of PASS is for like-minded professionals to interact and share knowledge. But how do you do this in your own workplace? What happens when Bob takes off with one day of notice? How do you manage when Jane unfortunately has to spend a month in the hospital?
All joking aside, the only way to truly become a master at your craft is to share your precious knowledge with your peers and workmates. We will discuss past and current trends in knowledge transfer, the reasons why you should (and shouldn’t) pass on knowledge, and methods for making this happen in your workplace and in your life.
Be prepared for an interactive and lively discussion and to walk away with some new concepts that are going to make you think about how you too can become a Master!

BIO
Michael Wall, Senior DBA
Michael has been a Database Administrator since he was asked if he wanted to be one after successfully managing the Y2K upgrade project on over fifty UNIX servers. Immediately thrust into a major Oracle upgrade project, he has since then managed multiple challenges. He has presented at multiple PASS User Groups and at SQL Saturdays and is in the leadership group for the Oregon Data Community (previously Oregon SQL). He has been on the planning team for a number of SQL Saturdays and plans to keep helping as much as he can!
