SQL in the City – The Red Gate Tour

Red Gate Software is announcing SQL in the City today, a series of events that will bring a free day of training to a few locations later this year. The events will be free and features specific Red Gate products and solutions to the common problems and situations that many SQL Server professionals face. It’s a mini tour with a few people from Red Gate and a few local speakers as well. We have two dates/locations scheduled so far, and we’re hoping for more soon.

sqlcitylondon

London. July 15, 2011.

Once again I’ll be heading across the pond. I will probably go 3-4 days early since it seems I regularly have issues flying internationally, but I’ll be there, along with Brad McGehee (blog | @bradmcgehee) and Grant Fritchey (blog | @gfritchey). There will be a few Red Gate people and MVP Mladen Prajdic is going to be giving a talk as well. We will be at One Wimpole St, wherever that is in London. Hopefully someone will ensure I arrive at the right place.

It’s a full day of SQL training and networking, giving you the chance to pick one of two tracks and learn some development tricks and tips, or come over to my track and learn how administrators deal with the problems they face on a regular basis. The agenda has a variety of topics that you’ll want to see. I’ll be doing the Preparation for Disaster talk, showing you some of the issues you might face at work and how to prepare for them, and recover from large and small disasters. It will feature some Red Gate tools that speed up your problem solving.

There are some other great sessions, and if you will be in London on July 15, 2011, register for the event.

The City of Angels

sqlcitylaWe’ll do it again on Oct 28, 2011 in Los Angeles, just before DevConnections. Brad, Grant, and I will be in the City of Angels for a Friday event and probably heading out to enjoy a few drinks that evening.

The agenda is similar, though Mladen isn’t making the trip across the water  (lucky guy). Instead we have MVP and MCM Denny Cherry, expert on hardware, virtualization, and security in SQL Server joining us to talk encryption and how you should protect your data.

This event will be at the Skirball Cultural Center in the Santa Monica mountains. A great location, and one I’m looking forward to visiting.

If you’ll be in LA, please register and come see us.
