Many speaking engagements!

, 2012-07-11

I have several speaking events coming up, and I would love to see you there!

First of all, I'll be speaking at SQL Saturday #122 in Louisville next week. I will be involved in three sessions: Features of 2012, 2012 T-SQL Features, and the Women in Tech Panel. Louisville is such a great location if you are in the eastern half of the country so think about joining us!

On August 4th, you can catch me at St. Louis Days of .Net speaking about 2012 T-SQL Features. This event has grown so large that it is no longer "Day" of .Net; it is "Days" of .Net.

September 15th is the very first SQL Saturday in St. Louis

I'll not only be speaking about T-SQL Features, I'll also be the Pragmatic Works representative and will be demonstrating our BI Express tool during lunch.

I am very excited to tell you about my first ever pre-con event! I am teaching a pre-con on SQL Server Clustering at the Nashville SQL Saturday on October 12th and speaking at the SQL Saturday on October 13th. Be sure to sign up early for the pre-con to get the early bird discount. and

One more exciting thing: the new "Beginning T-SQL 2012" book I co-wrote with Scott Shaw is available now! The 2008 book is being used by some community colleges and we also use it to teach T-SQL at Pragmatic Works. After teaching a class with the book, I realized, "Hey, this book is pretty good!"

Speaking at Community Events - More Thoughts

Last week I posted Speaking at Community Events - Time to Raise the Bar?, a first cut at talking about to what degree we should require experience for speakers at events like SQLSaturday as well as when it might be appropriate to add additional focus/limitations on the presentations that are accepted. I've got a few more thoughts on the topic this week, and I look forward to your comments.
