This is just a quick reminder that I and two of my friends are presenting Precons tomorrow for SQL Saturday Dallas. While I am biased and think that you should sign up for mine, any of these sessions are a huge educational value. If you’re in the DFW area, do yourself a favor and attend a Precon and SQL Saturday. The abstracts are below.
Hope to see you there!
Become an Enterprise DBA by Sean McCown
Speaker Bio: Sean McCown is a Microsoft Certified Master in SQL Server 2008. He is also a SQL Server MVP with over 15yrs experience in databases. Sean is also founder and co-owner of the renowned website MidnightDBA.com where he records free SQL Server training videos and co-hosts the popular Webshow DBAs@Midnight
In addition to this training, Sean has decided to offer all of the Enterprise DBA precon attendees a FREE copy of the DBA Roadmap webinar! Which means, of course, that the precon pays for itself…or you get both for 50% off, or however you want to look at it. Bottom line: attend Sean’s precon, learn massive amounts of stuff, AND improve your career exponentially. Win-win-win.
