I was asked to attend SQLSaturday #17 in Baton Rouge, LA. Despite my lack of desire to travel, I've never been to Louisiana (just driven across), the timing is good, and so I submitted an abstract to speak. The organizers had asked Red Gate to send someone, and since I'm the closest, I got asked.
So I should be in Baton Rouge on Friday, July 31, though I likely will fly into New Orleans and then drive up. I've never been there, so this will be the chance to see the city.
