Off to the Summit and SQL Saturday Oregon

I’m traveling this morning. My second to last trip of the year, and another long one. Today through the 20th I’ll be in Portland and Seattle.

First is Portland, where I’m seeing lots of friends and speaking at SQL Saturday Oregon & SW Washington 2022. I have been to Portland for a few SQL Saturdays, and I’m glad to see one coming back to the area. This was one of the first locations for SQL Saturdays back in 2009, and they’ve had quite a few since then.

Then a first time event for me, the #sqltrain. A few years ago Chris Hyde and a few others decided to go to Portland for the SQL Saturday before the Summit and then take the train up to Seattle. I’ve never done this, usually because I avoided long trips when my kids were kids. However, this time I am excited to join the ride up Sunday.

Sunday night through the following Sunday are in Seattle for the Data Community Summit. It’s a busy week for me and I have a lot of small speaking things, so I’m going to be running around a bit and rehearsing. With a pre-con on Tuesday, I’m going to be reviewing things Sun and Mon, as well as working on the day 2 keynote. When I’m not working on stuff, I hope to be in the Community Zone to talk about SQL Saturday and general community stuff with whoever walks by.

Fri night through Sun my wife is coming, so I’m looking forward to a dinner out and a night over on Bainbridge Island as a mini-vacation.

    When I lived in Portland Oregon, I used to do the train when I wanted to go to Seattle and only needed to go a few places there. It’s an easy ride and fun one to boot. I will be flying into Seattle Sunday afternoon, so, sometime that week I will look you up!
