SQLRally Nordic and SQLRally Amsterdam: Wrap Up and Demos

First and foremost: Huge thanks, and huge apologies, to everyone who attended my sessions at these events. I promised to post materials last week, and there is no good excuse for tardiness. My dog did not eat my computer. I don't have a dog. And if I did, she would far prefer a nice rib eye to a hard chunk of plastic.

Now, on to the purpose of this post...

Last week I was lucky enough to have a first visit to each of two amazing cities, Stockholm and Amsterdam. Both cities, as mentioned previously on my blog, hosted SQLRally events, and I did a precon plus two talks at each event.

The events in both cities were well done and the audiences seemed quite sharp. Very nice events at which to be a speaker! I hope to return to both areas very, very soon. (Hint, hint, event organizers!)

Precon attendees: You should already know where to get your slides and demos.

Breakout session attendees: Find the demos for both of my talks attached here.

Thanks again to everyone who I met and/or taught. It was really a fantastic week. Skål and/or proost -- depending on your disposition!
