Wow, it's been a crazy month! Two weeks of Tech Ed in Orlando, where I spent time helping people with questions on SQL Server in the Database Platform area and presented two sessions on SMO and PowerShell (one with my friend Peter Ward from Australia). Then, my last week as a DBA at Advanstar, followed by my first week as a Trainer for Scalability Experts! Wow.
So I wanted to get the word out about our upcoming SQL Saturday event in Berea, Ohio, on the campus of Baldwin-Wallace College. If you're going to be in the area, or if this will provide motivation to come to Cleveland, it should be a great event. I'm hoping to have about 30 sessions on SQL Server, both how to do things now, and how you'll be able to do things much easier with SQL Server 2008.
The Call for Abstracts is open, so if you're interested in presenting, please submit your session idea here.
If speaking isn't your strong suit but you'd like to attend we'll be happy to have you. The link to register is here.
The morning sessions will each be an hour long, in the Math and Computer Science building, and the afternoon sessions will be 75 minutes each, and be held in larger rooms in Strosacker Union. We'll have a box lunch on the picnic tables behind the Union (weather permitting) and a nice wrapup after the sessions with some great giveaways, including a full MSDN Team Suite subscription!
I look forward to seeing you at SQL Saturday, and perhaps meeting some of you in my teaching assignments with Scalability Experts!
