This will be my fourth year at SQL Saturday Oregon and I’ve had a great time every time.  Since it takes place the Saturday before PASS Summit, the event draws speakers from across the globe on their way to Seattle.

This year, I am presenting The SQL Server Transaction Log for Developers.  The transaction log is a subject near and dear to my heart and it has been really interesting looking at it from a different perspective.

If you are in the Portland area, I highly recommend attending.  You can find more information and register here.

SQL Saturday Columbus

It’s been a while since my last blog post.  Since then, I’ve been to PASS Summit, which was the best one yet.  I’ve presented at SQL Saturdays in Portland, Cleveland, and Iowa City. And, most excitingly, started a new job with BlueMetal.  I am in the middle of week 3 and am really excited about the new challenge.

I’ll be presenting on Using PowerShell to Automate Your Restore Strategy at SQL Saturday Columbus on July 16th.  It will be my first time in Columbus, Ohio and I am looking forward to seeing old friends, making new ones, and teaching and learning.  You can register and find more information at the link above.  If you are in the area, don’t miss the opportunity to get a free day of training while networking with your peers in the SQL Server community.

Presenting – The Odyssey Continues

GIVE ALL THE PRESENTATIONS
As I’ve mentioned before, I set a goal at the beginning of the year to average a presentation a month in 2014. My presentation, Designing a Recovery Strategy, at the Wisconsin SQL Server User Group this month put me halfway there.

In June, I am presenting Designing a Recovery Strategy again at SQL Saturday #307 in Iowa City on the 7th. And then, for the first time ever, I will be presenting twice on the same day at SQL Saturday #286 in Louisville on the 21st. I’ll be doing Designing a Recovery Strategy and Interrogating the Transaction Log (now with 2014!) If you are close to either event, I highly recommend attending. It is a great opportunity to get a free day of training and meet other members of the SQL community.

I close out the month by presenting Interrogating the Transaction Log at MADPASS June 25th. It has been a wild ride, but I’ve enjoyed every minute of it. Presenting is a great way to give back to the SQL community and I learn more than I thought possible every time I put a presentation together.
