I have the privilege of attending SQL Skills Immersion Event week one in Atlanta GA this week. My expectations were high since it is SQL Skills. Paul and Kimberly are two of the most respected SQL Server professionals in the business and have quite a few years under their belt with working with SQL Server. What ever my expectations were coming into the event, they were met and exceeded. I was somewhat concerned that the level of content would be far above my level of comprehension and that many things would be over my head. That hasn’t been the case. The flow of information is at such a pace that everyone can keep up and they take the time to fully explain the more complex topics.
For anyone that is thinking about attending more advanced SQL training to progress your career, the Immersion Events are worth the price of admission. The only downside is there are 4 different weeks of training and most companies wont pay for someone to attend all 4 weeks in one calendar year. If you are like me, you get one week of training, that means it would take me 4 years to get to attend all of it.
If you haven’t attended a SQL Skills Immersion Event or don’t know about them, then check out the SQL Skills website. For one, you should already be familiar with Paul, Kim, and Jonathan’s blogs and you should also be a SQL Skills insider.
Be on the lookout for some upcoming blogs on many of the new things I have learned this week.
