My THIRD SQL Saturday of the year is behind me.
I spoke in Tampa #32 and South Florida #40 earlier this year.
What I liked:
The coverage via the #sqlsat49 Twitter feed.
The constant updates from Jack on the event via e-mail and twitter.
The large schedules on the wall in the hallways even though I stayed in the PowerShell room most of the day.
Meeting the ScriptingGuy and ScriptingWife. Nice people. Funny guy.
The ScriptingGuy statue that @MaxTrinidad got as a gift. He wouldn’t let me touch it.
I REALLY liked that statue Max. (c;
The tweet from the @ScriptingGuys while I was doing my session “Why Learn PowerShell” asking if I wanted to do a guest blog post for the Scripting Guy blog.
How about “If the Original Cylons Had Learned PowerShell, Would They Have Been replaced by CGI?”.
@z_williamson’s tweeting the color commentary for the sessions he attended. Beware don’t make a mistake when he’s in the room. One of the presenters had an incident with a lack of power to his laptop and blurts out “Don’t tweet that!”. Too late, z_williamson had pulled the twitter trigger well before. I hope he’s going to the PASS Summit to provide coverage. I’d also like to thank him for taking pictures during my sessions.
A few quibbles:
The sponsor area. Need to find another table arrangement that reduces the bottleneck in the hallway.
Not enough Ninja T-shirts to go around. Seriously. LOL. No, I’m kidding.
Hey, Tampa. Let’s do a Kung-fu SQL Saturday in 2011. Orlando is going Ninja next year.
The 2010 PASS Summit in Seattle is next for me. @RonDBA will be there.
I can’t say enough how valuable the SQL Saturday concept is for networking and staying current on SQL Server. If you want to get ahead, you need to attend.
