Chattanooga SQL Saturday 2015

It was a such a great pleasure being part of the first SQL Saturday in Chattanooga!

I arrived on Friday for the speaker dinner. Larry Ortega and the rest of the organizing crew did an excellent job with the dinner and getting #SQLSat410 started off.

Another plus for the event – right outside my hotel was the Jurassic Park vehicle and the Mystery Machine (Scooby Doo van).CIgTLptWsAAjZt4

On Saturday, everything seemed to run very smoothly and attendees were ready to get their learn on.

My presentation went well – even the demo worked! The group was awesome and we had a productive conversation.

Atlanta SQL Saturday 2015

It was a great honor to speak at SQL Saturday Atlanta this past Saturday. This event is known to be a good one with large attendance, high-quality speakers, and a great organizing committee. #SQLSat392 was a huge success!

This year’s theme was Back to the Future, and along with movie references in the event materials, speaker shirts, and signage, there was a DeLorean parked out front!

My session, Tuning SQL Server, went well – great conversation from the attendees and the topic was received really well. I learned a few things as well, so I will apply that to my upcoming speaking opportunities.

Robert Verell, who lives in the same part of Tennessee as I do, was a speaker as well and we had a little fun in the sun after the event.
