I'm Andy Warren, currently a SQL Server trainer with End to End Training. Over the past few years I've been a developer, DBA, and IT Director. I was one of the original founders of SQLServerCentral.com and helped grow that community from zero to about 300k members before deciding to move on to other ventures.

Feedback on My Abstracts

Here’s the raw feedback from my submissions for the Summit. To those who wrote the feedback for me (and all the rest), I say nicely done. As much as I’d wish for still more feedback, this is useful. The only complaint I have is about “contractions” being a rule that is, as far as I know, unpublished. I look at this and think, why didn’t we do it years ago? Agree or disagree with the comments, anyone wanting to do better/increase their chances will find a lot of value in the feedback.

Don’t Be The Next Target – How To Secure Credit Card Data

The first sentence in the abstract needs the word “data” inserted between “card” and “now”.  Unique topic, but I am not sure it will attract many attendees.

Don’t Be The Next Target – How To Secure Credit Card Data

The abstract is well written and appears to cover the topic of securing Credit Card data very well.  However the lack of any demo is what has me lower the abstract rating by a point and subjectively by 2.

Turbocharge Your Career with A Learning Plan

Good topic. Good consistency across session name, abstract, topic and goals. I personally attended a session on the same topic during a SQL Saturday event and attendance / interest were pretty good. However the lack of practical examples and/or demos might make pretty hard to keep the attention for 75 minutes on this topic which is supposed to be more practical than academic.

Turbocharge Your Career with A Learning Plan

Excellent abstract. Clear information, gives a great narrative, and makes for compelling reading.

How To Write a Question Of the Day

Well structured abstract and extremely interesting topic. Just a minor concern regarding the fact that no practical examples will be provided as naturally expected on this topic and especially on a 10 minutes time window.

How To Write a Question Of the Day

This appears to be very SQLServerCentral centric, after all a question of the day is not something that shows up everywhere. Not sure that given this that it’s quite right as it’s pushing that site.

Welcoming The New Team Member

The 1st half of the abstract is perhaps overlapping with some typical HR duties. Also, unfortunately, in big corporates, the logical separation between contractors and permanent staff is enforced as part of the top down cultural approaches. Although the principles in the abstract are absolutely valid, perhaps the context of track / event might not be the best to discuss this topic.

Nice abstract, leaves wanting more without being linkbaity.
