SQL Saturday #21 and Tampa Code Camp 2009

A couple upcoming events I’ll be presenting at…

SQL Saturday #21 on October 17th in Orlando

I’m amazed at how SQL Saturday has grown since the first one just a couple of years ago. Nearly 300 attendees have registered and there’s still time to sign up for this free event. There will be over 50 sessions with good mixture of veteran and new speakers. I enjoy listening to polished presentations that have the look and feel of something I would see at one of the large conferences. Just as important I appreciate many of the first time speakers that remind me of one of my team meetings, listening to a fellow peer talk about a subject they feel passionate about.  I will be presenting a two-part session on SQL Server and Powershell with Max Trinidad.

In the week leading up to SQL Saturday there are several low cost one-day seminars. As many of you know I manage a DBA team, so I’m sending a couple people to the pre-event training.

Tampa Code Camp 2009 on November 7th

Max and I are teaming up once again to deliver a two-part PowerShell session on Saturday, November 7th. Because Powershell is among other things a .NET language, Code Camps presents a great venue to host PowerShell sessions. Although my domain SQL Server at Code Camp I’ll try to explain PowerShell outside the context of a SQL Server and present use cases for developers. You can register for this free event here.
