10 More Days Until Inspiration! - SQLInspireNYC 2011

Can't believe we're ONLY 10 days out from what's shaping up to be quite an extraordinary awesome event!  We've been talking about it some time now, and figure the T-Minus 10-day mark would be a good opportunity to give all you folks interested and/or registered attendees an event update, summarizing a sizzling super Saturday of SQLInspiration, November 12, 2011.

There is STILL TIME to register, and though seating is limited, they are still available.  Don't know if my next blog, I could say the same, so no more procrastination, if you were thinking about registering, DO IT NOW!!   Keep reading and find out why you DON'T want to miss it!

We have great sponsors, Red Gate, Embarcadero, Confio, and Microsoft, and like to thank each and every one of them for their support! 

Also, locally, we are being supported by the NJ SQL User's Group (NJSUG), led by NJSUG lead and SQLInspireNYC co-coordinator Melissa Demsak, aka SQLDiva. Let's also give a shout-out and thanks to Matt Velic, SQL blogger  and SQLPeople evangelist.

Now for some commercial play-on-words: Let's ignite this event into space and embarc-adero on an uplifting adventure that will take you for a hadoop beyond the cloud!  How's that for keyword placement ;-)

Earlier today, the genius behind the SQLPeople, Mr. Andy Leonard tweeted (@AndyLeonard) us a riddle.  It's getting very exciting, and Andy's creative juices are flowing!

"What do @ and have in common? SQLInspire lifts your soul; @ will lift all of you-to space!"   SQLInspire and RedGate converge at Microsoft HQ's in NYC!  RedGate has already allowed us to give away 20 FREE registrations!

Embarcadero is not only sponsoring the event, they’re also covering the 20 FREE registrations for people who sign up now! There are some left, so go ahead and use the following code to get your free registration: Tickets are limited to first come, first serve.

Here are the reasons you shouldn't miss this event:

Robert Pearl, (that's me :-), will talk about Telecommuting and the Virtual Office, and tips on how to get management to let you work-from-home! 

Steve Jones, editor-at-large, and co-founder of SQLServerCentral.com, will give his inspiring talk on finding balance with your IT career to enable a better, and more successful life.

Michael Corey, CEO of Ntirety, one of the most successful managed database services company, will be speaking at our event!  Thinking of making the journey from DBA to CEO?  Mr. Corey has been there, done that!  Go ahead and read his recent SQLPeople Interview, and then come hear him in person, by registering.

Michael Coles is our job navigator, navigating the new job market. The modern job market is constantly changing, and Mike brings us valuable negotiation techniques to get what you want, which can make the difference between a good opportunity and a great opportunity. 

Thomas LaRock, (@SQLRockstar) on loan from Confio, also has a SQL People Interview, and he too will be with us to tell us that there are seven days in the week, and someday isn’t one of them!

Andrew Brust, founder/CEO of Blue Badge Insights, and MS BI expert, is right on time with his Big Data, BI, Big Deal talk, now that MS has recently adapted hadoop to deal with big data in the cloud!

Brian Moran is Chief Servant Officer and co-owner of both Linchpin People and SQL People, and he talks about Professional Services 2.0  and how to build and manage a professional services company for the modern age leveraging wisdom from the past.

In addition to all the INSPIRATION, we're giving out that day, here are other reasons to show up and be inspired:
