Just stumbled upon this post, and in close to the same boat as the OP. I'm interested in advice about volunteering... Also, being new to this is there any value in attending a sql Saturday? Or is everything going to be completely over my head? There is one coming up in Madison Wisconsin, and by me in Chicago. Any advice would be great!

Like I said in the post you started on this subject, when it comes to local SQL Saturdays, drop everything and GO.

RBAR is pronounced ree-bar and is a Modenism for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
Although they tell us that they want it real bad, our primary goal is to ensure that we dont actually give it to them that way.
Although change is inevitable, change for the better is not.
Just because you can do something in PowerShell, doesnt mean you should. Wink

Take hard-copy resumes, business cards, your laptop with an electronic copy of your resume, and a winning attitude with you. Your resume should include some good details about how you've been training yourself and, if you have a good blog (no whining, very few errors both technical and otherwise) or have been posting accepted answers on forums, be sure to include the links for those in a section of your resume.

I did what I believe was the 2005 sql server equivalent (MSCA with sql server elective) years ago and they said the same thing about needing DBA experience to pass the exam. I managed to pass the exam with very little sql server and window os/network knowledge.


Saying that I am studying for the 2012 exams at present and finding it much easier this time.
