March MVP – Gareth Swanepoel | John Morehouse
The March nomination is Gareth Swanepoel (B|T). If you don't know Gareth you should make it a point to get to know him. He originally hails from South Africa but now resides in the United States with his family. Gareth is a frequent presenter in the SQL community. He's given presentations on various topics such as Parallel Data Warehouse, Extended events, column store indexes and others at SQL Saturday's as well the PASS Summit. Last year he did a whirl wind tour in South Africa, speaking at two different SQL Saturday events during his trip. He is also a PASS Regional Mentor (+4 years), the co-leader of the MagicPASS Chapter and a member of the PASS 2016 Summit Program Committee. In addition to all that, he was also a PASS 2015 Summit volunteer serving as a site ambassador for the event. Gareth is an individual that always has a smile on his face when you see and usually is accompanied by some sort goodie, quite possibly biltong. I suggest you to try some, not sure where to find
