SQL Saturday Oklahoma City Wrap Up

This past weekend I made the trek to Oklahoma City to participate in their latest SQL Saturday. It was the first time I had spoken there, but it didn’t feel that way. Kristin Ferrier (Blog/Twitter), Jeremy Marx (Blog/Twitter), Matt Brimer (Twitter), Allen Smith (Blog/Twitter), and the rest of the team were so welcoming, just what you’d expect from our #SQLFamily.

The event went off without a hitch. It was very well run, the volunteers knew exactly what they were doing, and the venue was great as well. I gave two presentations, which were fairly well attended. I didn’t stop to count, but I think both had more than 40 people. Judging from the feedback evaluations, both groups had a good time and learned a lot. As a bonus, both of my sessions were recorded. User Group TV was kind enough to record my Merge presentation, and I recorded the Data Warehouse Mistakes presentation myself using Camtasia. I’m currently editing the second presentation and hope to post a link to it tomorrow.

The recordings are below, along with links to download the presentation materials.

Have You Got the Urge to (T-SQL) Merge?

If you have never been to a SQL Saturday, I urge you to attend, get involved, volunteer, speak, or whatever you’re comfortable with. It’s so rewarding in so many ways.
