In just two days SQL Saturday 107 will be in full swing. Tomorrow begins their precon with the infamous Kalen Delaney. Those who were lucky enough to sign up and get one of the coveted spots are in for a treat. Thanks to the Idera ACE program I was blessed to spend three full days with Kalen and pick up a lot of new tips and tricks to help me progress in my career.
I will be presenting two sessions at SQL Saturday 107. My “You Inherited a Neglected Database” session and “It’s TEMPDB Why Should You Care”. I recently presented my TEMPDB session in Atlanta and had a rough go at it. Lets just say I had a very humbling experience and learned a few valuable things as a presenter. The biggest issue I had was being very nervous. I had a two fellow ACE’s in the room and several other folks that I know very well or know of. The room was also at capacity (50+ folks). I shall be much more calm in Houston and slow down my presentation. Even though I had a few bumps in my session, I had a very large number of people approach me telling me it was an “awesome” session. That made me feel much better.
If you are in the Houston area, I hope you are planning to attend this wonderful FREE event on Saturday.
