Free Education Rules

Anyone who reads this blog knows how passionate I am about learning. Learning is your path to job and financial security, brings feelings of accomplishment, and is just plain fun. I’m constantly amazed and grateful that I belong to one of the best technical communities on the planet. This is one of the few communities and careers where people are more than willing to teach you for free. Some excellent free educational opportunities hit my inbox lately that I wanted to share with you.

24 Hours of Pass

The 24 Hours of Pass recordings have been posted and anyone can freely download them. All you have to do is sign up for PASS, which is free. Go back and read the Top Ten Sessions for M2M Administrators article and download the videos.

Virtual Training for SQL Server Performance Tuning

Quest Software, maker of the fine database administration tool TOAD for SQL Server is offering a full day of free virtual training on Performance Tuning and Wait Events. The lessons will be given by three brilliant presenters, Brent Ozar, Kevin Kline, and Buck Woody. I’ve never watched a bad training event offered by Quest, and this one should be excellent as well.

Free Webinars from Wrox and Pragmatic Works

The experts at Pragmatic Works have been busy in a partnership with Wrox Publishing and have been cranking out free webinars covering everything from Datawarehouse Development to SAN administration. Once again, you will have to sign up but everying is completely free.

SQL Saturday Dallas Session Recordings – Coming Soon!

The good folks over at MidnightDBA will be posting all of the presentation recordings taken at SQL Saturday Dallas. I’ll follow up with another post as soon as they are released.

As an aside, the photographer, Emad Kamel, who graciously volunteered to take pictures of SQL Saturday Dallas has put them online. Peruse through them and see if you can find pictures of yours truly. 🙂

I know that it seems like I’ve been blogging solely about learning and community lately, and I promise that is going to change. I have some big projects that I have been working on which I will be sharing with you in the near future.
