It’s amazing to think I’ve been gone 10 days, out of the country. SQL Bits was amazing, and still is the best SQL Server conference in the world I’ve seen. I haven’t been to them all, but this is the best of those I go to.

Ireland was fantastic, and a very warm welcome for a day of training and then a talk at the Dublin SQL Server User Group. Some really interesting questions for me to blog about and answer in the next few weeks.

I saw some neat SQL Server tips, tricks, ideas, and inspirations, which is always a good thing as it motivates me to do more and learn more as my career progresses.

And I got a new shirt:

An amazing gift from the crew at SQL Bits. My own speaker shirt. I was quite touched and I really appreciate the effort they went to. I know what I’ll be wearing next year.

A few people were jealous, since the "regular" speaker shirts were blue polos. I guess I stand out a bit from them. The Friday night party was fun, with the Captain making an appearance.

All in all a great trip.

Now back to work.
