Well, I suppose you can’t REALLY go back in time, etc etc, but the next best thing would be this recap and recorded sessions links!
Sean, our daughter Lisette, and I drove up from Dallas Friday night, slept, and then merrily scampered off to another glorious day of SQL Saturday-ing. We saw many good SQL friends* there, including-but-not-limited to our most excellent chums (and past DBAs@Midnight guests) Wes Brown and Grant Fritchey. Sean and I had sessions in adjacent rooms in the 8:30 slot, so we got started.
Here’s where you’re in luck…you, attending this SQL Saturday from the future, can actually be in two places at once: Sean’s Understanding Backups class (here’s his Demo Code), and my T-SQL Brush-Up session (okay, I put up the recording from SQL Saturday #52 Colorado…this weekend’s recording forthcoming).
Lunch was lunchy, sponsors were sponsor-y, and all went well. In the afternoon we presented our dual session, Coherent Interviewing. Please note that this session contains very strong, offensive language, and no I’m not kidding. We DO warn you before the really offensive part comes up – one person kindly took us up on our invitation to skip that part, and we respect that. (I repeat: the management, organizers, and volunteers of SQL Saturday and PASS take no responsibility for the content of this session. If you’re offended, take it up with us please.)
We also gave away copies of www.DBARoadmap.com in our sessions, which I simply love doing. (The Roadmap is our 5+ hour webinar on leveling up your database career, and I of course heartily recommend you check out the free sample track.)
Aaaaand then we went home. Well, not immediately, and there was more, but you really have to attend a SQL Saturday to get the full greatness of it.
*Doesn’t “SQL Friends” sound like a Saturday morning cartoon? Somebody make that happen.
