Between September and October, I've attended 11 events in 7 cities and given 23 talks on 8 topics.

We certainly don't get those kind of opportunities living in Africa, I envy you.

In our monthly user group I find that there are too many talks discussing new and upcoming features and too few covering some of the basics like indexing or execution plans for example.

My problem is that what I would like to learn and think I should be applying I am restricted from doing at most clients. This restriction is on time. Yes, I could do it in my own spare (sic) time.

I would like to spend a reasonable amount of time to learn the diagnosis/debugging features of SQL Server inside out. Including performance. I think that these are basics but are often overlooked but more often put in the "later, always later" pile.

I think at this point, I'd like to start getting the hang of SSIS.

I'm one of those people who learn best by "playing" with something, which means I'd mostly have to do this on my own time. Not a big deal, one copy of SQL 2008 R2 Developers edition (may as well get a 2012 Dev Edition soon,) a VM, a decent "teach yourself X" book, and I'm started...

Now to get that 2012 Dev edition...

I'd like to learn more about SSIS as in coding, debugging, performance, etc. as it pertains to a DBA.

"I find the challenge of learning more about a technology or feature of SQL Server to be exciting, and it seems there's no shortage of new things I'd like to learn."

I am SO there, and not just with SQL Server! It's all so interesting and sometimes even fascinating to me. Obviously a person has to apply a little personal discipline to keep on task on all that lands outside of new things to learn. I struggle with that sometimes.

Of late I've spent a lot of time "translating" existing code from one language to another. Examples would include Sequel to DB2 or Cognos to SQL. The basics are easy, but the subtleties no so much. I would be interested in learning about the commonalities and differences in a world where old things and new things have to interact. I spend time searching a number of sites for explanations, since I'm not an expert on every language. I usually find my answers, but a straight-up comparison would be useful and at the same time give me a better understanding of the evolution of code.

"What do you want to learn?"

1. More about automating DBA tasks.
2. More about set-based SQL.
3. More about security.

By the way, Steve, congratulations on your whirlwind tour. That sounds like a crazy amount of travel and work!!

Thanks,
webrunner
