I found out over the weekend that I’ve been selected to speak at SQL Saturday NYC on May 6! This is one of my favorite events, and I try to attend every year. To the best of my memory, I’ve only missed one SQL Saturday, as either a speaker or an attendee, in NYC since they’ve been holding this event.
I will be doing two presentations:
- Disaster Documents: The role of documentation in disaster recovery — Documentation is a critical part of disaster recovery. This became evident on September 11, 2001. At the time, I was working for a company that had an office in the World Trade Center. When the towers fell, documentation was a critical for our recovery. In this presentation, I tell my story of how documentation played a role in helping my organization recover from that fateful day.
- Whacha just say? Talking technology to non technical people — The language of technology might as well be a foreign language to people who don’t understand technology. In this session, I talk about how non-technologists can be overwhelmed by this language, and offer tips as to what technical people can do to convey that language.
New York SQL Saturday is always a good time! I hope to see you there on May 6!
