As I’ve mentioned before, living in Louisville offers up great opportunities to various events within the SQL Community. This weekend I’ll be traveling down to Spartanburg, South Carolina to speak at SQL Saturday #431. I am always honored to be chosen to speak and this time isn’t any different. While it is still a 6 hour drive, I’m looking forward to seeing some of the country side on my trip.
The schedule is packed full of SQL goodness. So if you like free training, hanging out with other geeks and if you have nothing else planned on Saturday, September 26th, 2015, come on out and get your learn on.
If you want to hear me speak, these are the sessions that I’m delivering. I start first thing at 8:15AM so feel free to bring coffee. Odds are I’ll have some too.
Social Media is all over the news today. Did you see that on Facebook? Johnny 5 said what on Twitter? Can you believe Susie moved to that company? Do any of those sound familiar? No? Never heard of Twitter or LinkedIn? Have no fear, this is the session for you! Social networking can be a very confusing and intimidating place. What makes it even worse, is when you have no clue even where to start. In this session, we will go over different facets of Social Networking and Media and how you can use them to enhance not only your personal lives but just as importantly, your professional one. For example, did you know you can get help from some of the top minds in the SQL Server profession by using the #SQLHELP hash tag for free? We will show you how! We’ll be covering that and more using Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter.
Continuous Integration & Delivery isn’t a new concept. Application Developers have been doing it for quite a while and now it’s time for Database Professionals to catch up. Whether you are a database administrator, database developer, or even an application developer, database continuous delivery can help you find your salvation. I’ll show you how to apply these concepts to areas of security, collaboration, testing, support and deployments. We will look at what continuous delivery means, demonstrate some tools that can help you easily get it into place, and dive into why it’s important.
This is a new session for me and I’m really excited to be able to present it.
Remember that these events are a FREE day of awesome SQL Server training and professional development. The only cost to you is if you decide to purchase lunch! Check out the schedule and register. In today’s economy, how can you afford to pass up FREE training?!?! The answer is that you can’t. Go register and get out there and learn.
If you make it out either of my sessions, make sure to come up and introduce yourself as I’d love to meet you! I look like a mean DBA but I promise that I’m not. =)
See you in Spartanburg!
