It’s been a fun year for SQL Saturday so far! I’ve spoken at three SQL Saturdays and two user group meetings so far this year, and more speaking engagements are on the horizon.
As of today, I am only confirmed to speak at one SQL Saturday, but it’s a big one.
- SQL Saturday #855, Albany, NY, July 20: this is my hometown event, and I’m always honored to be presenting in my own backyard! I will be doing a brand-new presentation, about ‘blogging. (No, I still haven’t finished my slides yet!) Additionally, I got the official word this morning that I will be also be doing a lightning talk. I will do a ten-minute talk about what I think might very well be the most important business networking tool you could have.
Come on out and see me present in my home turf! Use the link above to register for this great event!
There are also a number of events to which I’ve applied to speak. I may not know for a little while as to whether or not I’m picked, but so far, the list includes these events.
- SQL Saturday #892, Providence, RI, August 24: When I spoke to John Miner (who is organizing this event) in Virginia Beach last weekend, he sounded pretty certain that I would be speaking. I don’t want to say too much until I get the official word, but nevertheless, this is a good event to attend. Providence is always a good one!
- SQL Saturday #912, New York City, October 5: I’ve attended SQL Saturday in NYC more than any other event, going all the way back to my very first one in 2010! I’ve only been selected to speak there once (last year). Let’s see if I’m picked again.
- PASS Summit, Seattle, WA, November 5-8: This is considered the “Super Bowl of SQL Saturdays.” I’m hoping!
SQL Saturday/PASS events are always a good time, and I tend to give pretty good presentations (or at least I’ve been told as much). Hopefully, I’ll see you at one near you sometime soon!
