Four reasons why I’m looking forward to #SQLSat104

Next month I’ll be attending and speaking at the Colorado Springs #SQLSat104.  I’m looking forward to this event for a number of reasons:

1.      It’s my very first SQLSaturday!  I’ve always wanted to attend – but neglected to do anything about it until now. 

2.      The day is packed with great session choices.  While I myself will be speaking at 2:30 PM, I want to catch as many sessions as I can both before and after.  This will force me to make some tough choices, but that’s a good problem to have.

3.      I’ll get a chance to present “Performance Issue Archetypes”.  This is basically an ode to common performance themes that I’ve seen over the last few years as a consultant and support engineer.   And while I always try to lean heavily on data-driven methodologies and not get overly distracted by initial patterns and symptoms (beware red herrings) – there are still various themes that I pay close attention to. My plan is to share these themes over the course of the hour.

4.      Without a doubt the part I’m looking forward to most is the opportunity to meet people in person.  While I’ve met a few of the planned attendees and speakers over email or Twitter, nothing beats actually spending time with people in person. 

If you plan on attending #SQLSat104, please stop by and say hello!
