This weekend I’ll be traveling to Kansas City, Missouri for their annual SQL Saturday. Normally, I would just drive to this event. However, I’m no longer living in Omaha so this year it’s a plane for me.
One of my favorite things about this event is that every year the organizers host a BBQ crawl on the Friday before. It’s similar to a -“bar crawl“, – hopping from one bar to another, except this is done with BBQ establishments around the Kansas City metro area. Since I’m a lover of all things BBQ, this is right up my alley and an excellent way to spend a Friday afternoon.
I am really looking forward to seeing friends and partaking in a little BBQ. However, due to my flight schedule I won’t be able to participate in all of the establishments but I plan on catching up when I get there.
SQL Saturday #444
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, this is the session that I’m delivering. I start first thing at 9:00AM so feel free to bring coffee.
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 relatively new session for me and I’m really excited to be able to present it.
How Can You Beat FREE Training?
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, get out there and learn.
If you make it out to see my session, make sure to come up and introduce yourself as I’d love to meet you!
See you in Kansas City!!
