SQL Saturday Headshots

This past weekend was SQL Saturday #478 – Albuquerque, and I was happy to have the chance to attend again. I was at the first two, missing last year with another event. It was good to go back, and carpool down to Taos for a day of skiing beforehand. Three of us from Colorado went down( myself, Jason Horner, and Reeves Smith), meeting Tim Mitchell, Ginger Grant, and Amy Herold at Taos for a warm day of skiing. Not the best, but good company and a lot of fun.


Saturday was another well run event. Thanks to @keith_tate, @coffegrl, @ChrisHyde325 for all the work they put in. The event went off without a hitch, and it seemed that people really enjoyed the day of learning.

Jamey Johnston was there again, which I was glad to see. Jamey and I were at the Austin event a few weeks ago, and Jamey was taking pictures of the speakers. I got distracted and missed my chance, which I regretted. Fortunately, Jamey set up his equipment in Albuquerque and I got my chance again.

I took advantage of it.


Representing the Denver Broncos, US football champions, and having fun. However, I was serious at least for a few minutes.


All in all, a fun weekend and a good time.

Now I just need to get back to work and tackle a few of the things I learned while watching some Machine Learning, Power BI, Always Encrypted, and more. It’s a good time to be a SQL Server pro.

    I was all set to go and got sick. Maybe next year. I hope to get to SS Phoenix in April, and we’ll see if El Paso does it again in the fall.
