I had the opportunity to present Analyzing I/O Performance at SQLSaturday #300 in Kansas City, MO on September 13, 2014. I think the session went well, judging by the amount and type of questions that I got during and after the presentation, along with the written feedback forms that I read afterwards.
The overall event was well-run, and well-attended, with some good barbeque for lunch. I have a lot of respect for the organizers and volunteers for SQLSaturday events.
