Spring/Summer Speaking Schedule

The Grateful DBA is happy to announce that I’ll be speaking at several SQL conferences this spring and summer.   Not exactly what one would designate a “whirlwind tour,” yet nonetheless I’m truly looking forward to each for many specific reasons.  I will be speaking at each of these conferences on a subject which consumes much of my day; transactional replication.  So…if you happen to catch it more than once and it sounds familiar, now you know why.

The schedule and a couple notes about each event…

  • 4/24/10, SQL Saturday #41, Atlanta, GA – Besides the normal “I’m-REALLY-looking-forward-to-this-SQL-Saturday” reasons, this weekend has an extra bonus attached, and it’s called Railroad Earth.   For those not familiar with this wonderful bluegrass-rock-roots-jam band, search them out on MySpace, YouTube, etc for a taste of their style.  Anyway, they just so happen to be at the Variety Playhouse that evening after the conference and I will of course will be making my way downtown to boogie.
  • 5/8/10, SQL Saturday #38, Jacksonville, FL – This event holds a special place in my heart only because it’s put on by my local SQL Server user group, JSSUG.  I will be taking an active role in not just presenting, but helping Brian, Devin, & Scott prepare in any way needed.  It takes place right around the corner here in Jacksonville on the lovely campus of The University of North Florida.
  • 6/5/10, SQL Saturday #22, Pensacola, FL – You may have guessed by now that these SQL Saturdays are numbered sequentially, and this one being #22 tells me they’ve been working on getting it together for quite a while.  The official presenter’s list has not been decided upon yet as I believe the call for speakers hasn’t technically closed.  I have of course applied to present and certainly hope to be asked to speak.  Either way, I will attend this fine event as a day of free training with some of the top SQL minds in the country is just too good to pass up. (Edited 4/19/10:  Speaker’s list appeared over the weekend…it’s official!  See ya there!!)
  • 7/31/10, SQL Saturday #40, Miami, FL – Same thing here as for Pensacola; the call for speakers won’t close for another month or so, but I certainly hope to be asked to present.  Despite the expectation of oppressive heat (c’mon, it is South Florida in July), I always love traveling south the length of my home state as well as catching up with several close friends I happen to have in the Boca/Palm Beach area.

If you attend any or all of these events, please please make sure to find me and say hello.  I truly look forward to meeting the 3 people who read my blog.  😉

Have a Grateful day…Troy
