I’ve grown up reading Tom Clancy and probably most of you have at least seen Red October, so this book caught my eye when browsing used books for a recent trip. It’s a fairly human look at what’s involved in sailing on a Trident missile submarine…
After speaking at SQL Saturday Iceland last year, which is a smaller event that I absolutely loved (you can read about that adventure here), I decided I wanted to do another smaller event. They are much more intimate and offer a better chance of engaging with attendees, sponsors, organizers and other speakers.
I heard about a smaller event called SQLGrillen that took place in Germany. Their motto is “Databases, Bratwurst and Beir”. How cool is that?! But alas, I missed the call for speakers deadline, so I kept my fingers crossed that the event organizers would put it on again this year and low and behold they did. They’ve changed the name to DataGrillen, but it’s still the same cool event.
I submitted a session and to my surprise and amazement, I was selected to speak. I will be giving my Profiling Your Data session on Friday, June 21, 2019. Now my German is very limited (Nein, Ja, Bitte, Bier & Bahnhof) but I’m still excited and I hope to see you there.
The event is already sold out, but they do have a wait list. If you want to go get your name on the list as soon as possible because it’s FIFO.
Auf wiedersehen for now.
