SQL Saturday NYC (588) – I’m Speaking!

SQL Saturday NYC (588) – I’m Speaking!

I’m excited to announce that I’ll be speaking at this year’s edition of SQL Saturday New York City (#588) on May 20th! From a personal perspective, it’s fair to say that attending the 2015 edition of SQL Saturday NYC changed my professional life and it’s meaningful to not only be able to attend this year’s event, but to actually be on the speaking roster with so many people who have influenced my career, if only from blogs and books. I look forward to meeting them in person (and you as well).

This year’s speaking roster is absolutely outstanding (despite my presence dragging down the average!) and I cannot recommend highly enough registering for the event. It will fill up, and you absolutely won’t want to miss out on this day of free training from a who’s who of SQL community rockstars. Come for the speakers, make sure you visit the sponsors, and network with your fellow Microsoft data platform professionals. It may change your professional life, as it did mine.

Although I never need an excuse to visit the Greatest City in the World, those of you who may not be local would be well-served to submit a training request to attend this event. Not only do you get free Microsoft data platform training from some of the very best speakers in the community, you might get a night (or two) in a fantastic city as well.

Although the Empire State Building won’t be lit up to honor my Clemson Tigers (as it was in the image above), I can’t wait to get to New York, see old friends, make new ones, and present my Top 5 Always On Availability Group Tips session. I hope it helps you save a few sleepless nights and improves the care and feeding of your Always On Availability Groups. I’ll see you in May!
