Speaking at Seacoast SQL Server Users Group

Live in or near the Seacoast region of New Hampshire? The Seacoast SQL Server User group meets every second Tuesday of the month at 6:15 and so far we have had a great time at the meetings. I blogged about our inaugural meeting here and am excited to watch the membership grow and to see the attendance remain steady even through this awesome summer we have been having. The SQL Server user community in this region is huge and a large percentage care enough to come out and keep their skills sharp.

For the July meeting…

I’ll Be Speaking

I know. I booked myself, is that wrong? It made it easier than finding a speaker during July and with the new baby in the house, etc. So I am excited to be speaking on a topic I enjoy speaking about. I’m giving a presentation I have given a few times now (SQL Saturday Boston, SQL Saturday in Charlotte and to the Southern New England SQL Server Users Group). This is a fun one to give and it brings it back to basics a little.

It is my “As a DBA, Where Do I Start?!?” presentation, you can read a bit about it and see an earlier slide deck from it on my blog here. The main point is still the same but I am ever tweaking the delivery and slides to make them work a bit better.

So, if you are interested in the thought process around being a DBA, interested in where to prioritize the tasks as a DBA or just want to throw rotten fruit at me, check out the Seacoast SQL site and send an RSVP e-mail.

Special thanks to SQL Sentry for sponsoring this month’s meeting. I make it no secret that I enjoy working with their products so I’m excited to have them be the sponsor the same month I’m speaking!
