I’m going to Disney World! (Well, to SQL Saturday Orlando)
September 8, 2009 Leave a comment
I’m going to Disney World! At least that’s what my kids will think when I tell them that I’m heading to Orlando, Florida, next month for SQLSaturday #21. I’ll tell them otherwise, but they’ll be skeptical, of course. And who can blame? I’m going to Mickey Mouse’s backyard without them.
But their doubts will really escalate when I return home. They’ll be able to tell that this was no ordinary business trip. No, this one is going to be fun. I’ll hang out with some really great folks in the SQL community, learning about the product, and just having some fun.
SQLSaturdays are great events! You can think of them as one-day mini conferences that are jam packed with great SQL Server content and people. They are run by the community, for the community. And it really shows.
Jack Corbett and Andy Warren and the rest of the volunteers have done a great job putting together a fantastic line up of speakers. Jonathan Kehayias, Kevin Kline, Brian Knight, Jorge Segarra, Buck Woody, and Kevin Boles are among the renown SQL Server experts presenting at the event.
If you’re a SQL professional or want to be one, this is the event you’ll want to attend. If you’re looking for an excuse to make it to Orlando this fall, you’ve found it. And if you do come, be sure to look me up; I’d love to talk with you.
