My Spring/Summer is just bursting with SQL Saturday events! It's amazing how many there are to choose from, but alas, that comes with some tough decision making at times.
As I type, I'm headed off to SQL Saturday #109 in Mountain View, CA. I'll be representing both Women In Technology and Idera ACE groups this weekend. I'm really looking forward to working with fellow PASSWIT members Denise McInerney (twitter), Meredith Ryan-Smith (twitter) and Jen Stirrup (twitter) on the Luncheon panel. We will be discussing: Why Do Women Matter in the Tech Community. I'm also looking forward to making a new friend in the 4th member of the group, Nikila Srinivasan (twitter)!
Later in the afternoon, I get the chance to talk about one of my favorite features in SQL Server, Transactional Replication (I know, I'm such a geek....)
The best part of any SQL Saturday is the networking - so if you're around, please say "Hi", I love to meet fellow SQL people!
In April, I'll be heading to Houston for their SQL Saturday. They haven't released their schedule yet, but I'm sure it will be an amazing lineup.
Alas, I won't be able to make the Madison, WI event since I'll be in Houston already. Bummer.
Then, come May 19th, we're back for our 3rd Annual SQL Saturday in Chicago!
Also on the horizon is Indianapolis at the end of July. I'll be helping out with the Women In Technology panel there, too.
