If someone had told me two years ago that this Saturday I’d be speaking for the second time this year [let alone in my entire life] on the Microsoft campus in Redmond I’d have suggested they seek professional (ahem, psychiatric) help.
A surprise to us all, I survived the community vote and will be speaking at SQL Saturday #108 in Redmond, WA this weekend. I’m very excited that A) at least *some* people aren’t tired of hearing me speak [yet] and B) I get to speak on the Microsoft campus!!!!!
The folks at Idera are sending Wes Brown ( blog | twitter ) and myself out to this event as part of their ACE program. If you’ve never been to one of Wes’ sessions, you need to go. I offer a money back guarantee that you will laugh at least once during his session. The reason I bring all this up is that they are now recruiting a fresh crop of ACEs for 2012. If you’d be interested in finding out more about the ACE program, drop David Fargo ( twitter | email ) a line by this Friday and tell him that you’d like to hear more.
