SQL Saturday #107 in Houston, TX is almost here. I will be leaving for Houston on Friday, April 13, and I’ll be spending the entire week preceeding SQL Saturday #107 in Houston visiting the headquarters of my new employer, Idera. One of the coolest parts of this trip is that I’ll get to see the other Idera ACEs (Advisors & Community Educators) and some of the new ACEs for next year’s program (starting in July 2012).
