Speaking at SQL Saturday #50 in Iowa City, IA, and the recent disturbance in the Force.

In a few weeks I will be meeting a lot of old friends and new folks at SQL Saturday #50 in Iowa City. I'll do two presentations: on defensive database programming and on coding for high concurrency.

I really like this whole SQL Saturday thing. For me it is much better to allocate a Saturday for training and networking close to where I live, than to travel and not work for several business days. I would like to thank Steve Jones, Andy Warren, and Brian Knight who got this whole thing up and running.

Recently there was a disturbance in the Force. Quite a few people got really disappointed that Steve Jones was rejected for PASS board. Here is my take at it.

I really appreciate Steve's contributions to the community. I like, attend, and speak at SQL Saturdays. Also I regularly visit To show how much I appreciate this great site, I will begin contributing to it - I will be regularly submitting articles to it. I hope they will be accepted and published. I don't have anything else to say on this issue.
