SQLSaturday Phoenix Wrap-Up

We had a great day at SQLSaturday Phoenix this weekend!  The weather was beautiful (about 60°F warmer than at my home in Iowa!), and the crowd was fantastic.

Thanks to all who attended my sessions!  Both groups asked a lot of great questions.  I hope all of you were able to find something you could take back to your companies.  The presentation files (including the demos for the encryption session) have been uploaded to my Presentations page and to the SQLSaturday website.  I’m also working on a few blog posts about how to create a demo environment similar to what I showed in the availability group session – stay tuned for those.

And as always, my most sincere thanks go to the organizers.  It’s a lot of work to put on an event like this, and they did a fantastic job!
