Tim Radney - Database Professional

Tim Radney - Database Professional by Tim Radney I am a Sr DBA for a top 40 US bank. I live in the south eastern US. I have been working with database since 1999 but only full time for the past three years.

Speaking at PASS Summit 2013

PASS Summit 2013 will be my fifth Summit to attend.  I wrote a blog post about how different my fourth Summit experience as from the previous three. Summit 2012 was all about networking and offered my first experience to speak to a crowd.  Idera allowed me to present two sessions at their booth on backup and recovery as part of the ACE program.  This year I have a new opportunity as well.

I was chosen to give a lightning talk session.  PASS Summit 2013 I am attending as an official speaker.

summit2013This is a really cool opportunity.  I have submitted to speak the past two years and both years I got the dreadful “Max Sessions Allowed” for my topics.  Many friends encouraged me to submit a Lightning talk session so I did. Getting a coveted speaker slot at the Summit is hard due to the vast amount of awesome people who submit to speak. There isn’t a harder task in my opinion than the speaker selection for Summit.  If you have ever organized a popular SQL Saturday and had to deal with speaker selection, imagine that times 1000. Getting the email from PASS about a session being picked was awesome and humbling.

Gotta run, I need to start working on my demo’s.
