Speaking / Teaching Engagements

Brian Kelley, 2009-02-06

I should have put this out earlier, before going to the SQL Server Innovators Guild, but I got too busy. Here are my current speaking / teaching engagements for the first half of the year:

  3  – SQL Server Innovators Guild – Greenville, SC – Fortress SQL Server
 17 – Charlotte SQL Server User Group – Charlotte, NC – Fortress SQL Server

 10 – Pee Dee Area .NET User Group – Florence, SC – Getting the Most Out of SQL Server Queries
 26 – Augusta Developers Guild – Augusta, GA – TBD

  9 – Greater Charleston .NET User Group – Charleston, SC – TBD

 21 – South Carolina ISACA – SC Midlands Chapter – Columbia, SC – SQL Server Security and Auditing (4 CPEs)


SQL Saturday:

I’m also looking at the following SQL Saturdays to potentially submit for and attend:

  • March 9, Birmingham, AL (#7)
  • April 25, Atlanta, GA (#13)
  • May 2, Jacksonville, FL (#15)
  • June 6, Pensacola, FL (#14)

In addition, in a quick vote last night, 4 out of 4 officers present (total of 5) of the Midlands PASS Chapter voted to look at putting together a SQL Saturday for Columbia, SC. We’re going to split efforts from the Columbia Enterprise Developers Guild, who may be looking at doing a Day of .NET or something similar.

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.
