I’ll be traveling this week to SQL Saturday #550 in San Antonio. This is my first time traveling to this part of Texas and I’m looking forward to getting a few minutes to swing by The Alamo and see a piece of history. The Riverwalk is also on my list as a place to hopefully enjoy a margarita or two.
This is a combination trip for me, going early to see Tim Mitchell’s pre-con on Building Better SSIS Packages. I don’t do a lot with SSIS, but training time can be hard to come by. I always learn things at one hour sessions, but I’m hoping to get a chance to do a little more in depth work with Tim on Friday. He’s a great teacher, and I’m always appreciative of software devleopment techniques that try to build reusable, scalable skills for developers.
Saturday will be a great event, the first one in San Antonio. I will be delivering my Branding Yourself for a Dream Job talk at 9:45. However, around that, there’s quite a list of sessions covering all aspects of SQL Server. BI, Performance, HA, even Linux.
If you can make the trip to San Antonio, come on down, learn some SQL Server, meet fellow data professionals, and get inspired to try something new in SQL Server the following week.
