What Do You Want to Learn?

By Steve Jones,

This is a busy time of year for me. Between September and October, I've attended 11 events in 7 cities and given 23 talks on 8 topics. It's been a hectic time and I'm looking forward to snow falling in the Colorado mountains and taking some time off to relax and enjoy life away from work.

It seems that every year I'm working on and delivering 3 or 4 new sessions on a variety of topics. 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. As I watch different presentations, I find myself itching to work with the topic and learn how it might be useful for me. I often end up taking some area of SQL Server that interests me, and I think will interest other, and building a talk.

However I rarely hear from the rest of the community about the topics they'd like to learn about. This week I'd like you to think about the topics that you wish someone would present at your next user group, SQL Saturday, or conference:

What do you want to learn?

Let me know this week. I don't know that I'll tackle many of the ideas, but I'm sure there are speakers out there that will examine your opinions and consider building a presentation that might be in demand.
