Last weekend I attended SQL Saturday #21 in Orlando. For those of you sleeping your way through work, SQL Saturday is a series free training events that focus on local professionals sharing knowledge. (And yes, some of us do get so excited about data that we give up a Saturday and drive 500 miles to learn even more.) Saturday #21 featured topics ranging from managing SQL Server on a SAN to Policy Managing and Compliance strategies. If you missed this event the next best thing is to check out the blog posts from some of the presenters: Jonathan Kehayias, Andy Warren, Jorge Segarra, and Max Trinidad. And while you are at it check out the SQL Saturday schedule and plan to attend the next one near you. It’s great free community-based training.
I’ll try to put together a blog post in the next week about how I was able to apply what I learned at SQL Saturday #21.
Here’s the schedule that I picked out for myself and what those blog posts might end up being about:
SANs and SQL Server
Policy Based Management 101
Auditing User Activity 101
PowerShell and SQL Server (More SMO)
SQL Server PowerShell Extensions
Buck Woody SQL
Server Resource Governor
I hope to see you at the next one!! 🙂
(Now if they’ll just post the link to SQL Saturday in Tampa January 2010!)
