Spring SQL Saturday Sprint!

If any of you are in the Midwestern US, you can come see me speak both of the next two weekends. Both are new sessions, and they should be great!

On April 6, I’ll be presenting “Get Involved!” at SQL Saturday #206 in Madison, WI:

SQL Saturday is a great place to learn more about SQL Server. But did you know that it’s just the tip of the iceberg? There are a number of places you can learn about SQL Server and just as many ways to share what you’ve learned with others. Most don’t even require a lot of time or money. The SQL Server community is vibrant and growing, and it needs your voice. Come to this session to find out how you can get involved!

And then on April 13, I’ll be presenting “Service Broker: The Queue Continuum” at SQL Saturday #211 in Chicago:

Pop quiz: How can SQL Server help developers build scalable, distributed, and asynchronous applications? Service Broker is the answer! In this presentation, I’ll show you what it is; talk about when and why you might want to use it in your applications; walk through an example of how to set it up; and share a few lessons learned from our successful implementations.

There are a ton of other great sessions from great speakers scheduled for both events, too. Come get some free SQL Server training!
