The SQL in the City Summits are back for 2019, and we’ve got more scheduled than every before. You can see the complete list on our event page, and I’m lucky to be invited to all of them. Here’s the schedule.
We kick off the year in London on April 30. Having been busy with volleyball all this year, my first weekend free is going to be heading back to London and helping kick off our 2019 tour.
Tickets are on sale now, and if you use “SteveJones” as a code, you should get 50% off. Register today and I’ll see you at Canary Wharf.
The US Tour
It’s a short tour, but we’ll be back in the fall again, so if you’re not near one of these cities, you’ll still have a chance to attend. Use “SteveJones” as the code when you register for a ticket.
We start on May 15 with SQL in the City Summit Los Angeles. I enjoy the city of Angels for a few day and I’m looking forward to coming back for an hour at Venice Beach. I’ll also be speaking, along with Kendra, our top engineer, Arneh, and the amazing Ike Ellis. It will be a great time, so brave the traffic and come see us at the Microsoft office in LA.
Next we head to Austin, TX on May 22 for the next Summit. Austin is a great town, and full of SQL Server professionals. We came through here a few years ago and I’m looking forward to coming back. A quick trip for me as my daughter graduates this week, so I’m jetting back to Colorado after the event.
SQL in the City Down Under
Redgate recently opened an office in Australia and as part of our expansion, we’re doing a SQL in the City Tour in June. I’m very excited as I’ve never been to this part of the world, though this will be a long trip with some vacation taken to enjoy the trip.
We start in Brisbane, on May 31 as the first stop. We coincide with SQL Saturday #838 – Brisbane on June 1, so be sure you register for both. Warwick Rudd, of SQL Masters Consulting, will be joining me to talk about Redgate and database DevOps. We also have Hamish Watson, Michael Noonan, and Dr. Greg Low joining us. A special thanks to Warwick for moving the SQL Saturday date to align here and help me out.
Next I’m taking a few days off and making my way to Christchurch, NZ for our second event on June 7, with SQL Saturday #831 on June 8. Hamish Watson is an exciting speaker and he’ll be hosting us. Looking forward to a fun NZ winter, perhaps with some skiing before or after.
We round out the tour in Melbourne on June 14, with SQL Saturday #865 on June 15. I’ve heard wonderful things about the city and I’m hoping I get to enjoy a little time there. If you say hi, let me know what you like to do around town.
It’s going to be a hectic few months, but I’m looking forward to delivering some sessions and meeting some wonderful people to talk databases.
