Later this week I will be doing an episode of the Greg Low’s excellent SQL Down Under podcast (http://www.sqldownunder.com/Resources/Podcast.aspx), something I did once before back in 2006. If you haven’t listened to any of the previous editions, there are some amazing people who have been on his podcast.
On Thursday at 12:00 Central Time, I will be doing a presentation entitled Designing for Common Problems in SQL Server for the PASS Data Architecture Virtual Chapter.
Friday I will be driving up to Cleveland, OH for SQL Saturday 164. I will be doing the Designing for Common Problems in SQL Server session, along with the Sequences session that I have done at several SQL Saturdays so far. Saturday I will give away two copies of my brand new book, one in each session, so if you want to be the first person I give one to, be there!
Right now, the biggest issue is that the Designing for Common Problems session is WAY too long. In my prep so far, I have gotten halfway through with the patterns and code in one and a half hours. So who knows what I will do to cut down the time, either limit the patterns, or perhaps split the session? I will figure something out… at least on Saturday when I have real people I can poll the audience to see what they want to see in detail. Online pretty much all you see are people’s names and the clock ticking away.
I have a few other things coming up, including picking speakers for Nashville’s SQL Saturday, shipping out books to my SQL Rally attendees, and Devlink at the end of the month (when I will have a bit longer to the Common Problems session, thankfully), but more on that after this weekend.
