The 700 Milestone

I’ve watched various SQL Saturday milestones go by. I missed 100 in Brazil, but did manage to get to 200 in Philadelphia and 300 in Kansas City. 400 was in Torino, and I am sad about not making the effort to get there. 500 was Boston, but I had a conflict. 600 Chicago, but again, other plans.

Colorado Springs was awarded 700, and I had to submit ASAP to that one. I’ve got a morning commitment for volleyball, but I’ll be racing down to get to the event and attend the after party.

I’ve got a repeat presentation, Branding Yourself for a Dream Job, but there are some other great talks. PowerBI from TJay Belt and Meagan Longoria, Optimizer secrets from Brian Hansen, Data Science from Reeves Smith and more.

Plus there are two great pre-cons on Friday. The Midnight DBAs talking Enterprise Maintenance and Kevin Kline giving you 50 things you need to know.

If you’re nearby, get a free day of training and say hi in the afternoon. If you can convince the boss, I’d say you should take advantage of one of these pre-cons as well.
