That is right, SQL Saturday is coming back for the third year to Phoenix. I am again excited for the event and I am sure that I will do my Beginner Powershell for the session and I am thinking about doing a couple others. I might do a next level Powershell for the DBA so that I can dive a bit deeper into what Powershell really gains the DBA. This session will probably be mostly demo and not so much what and why Powershell. That you should get from the beginning Powershell session. One big dilemma I have this time around is that Powershell Plus is now free. That is awesome and I am glad that everyone can use it now, but it is not as exciting to give away something that is already free. I will have to talk to some vendors and see what I can get for you.
The other session that I am thinking of will be on Delphix for SQL Server. A co-worker has expressed interest in presenting on this with me as we have both been very involved with the beta testing of the product and have had the opportunity to provide feedback on the product and help shape what the final product will look like. I think that by the time the event comes around, they will have a fully baked product and I think you will all love it.
So three sessions is a lot of work to put it all together and update the one that I already have. I will figure it out and get it done though. Those are the three that I would really like to do so let me know if you would rather one or the other or if none or all three. Or please suggest something else that you think I might be good at presenting. I am always looking for feedback and new ideas. That just made me think of a fourth, SQL Server on Windows Server Core. I have it up and running on a VM now and it is pretty cool. So that is four but I am not sure I can pull that many off and do them all as good as I would want to. So please let me know what you think I should present on.
Here is a link to the event. Looks like we already have some good sessions submitted. So please come out and present or just come out and do some networking and learning. I know I always meet some good people and I always learn something new. These events really are fantastic, and they are free. Check it out.
