Where’s Drew, March 2017 Edition

Hey everyone! March is shaping up to be another busy month both at work with some server upgrades and new automation projects, and in my blogging and speaking engagements. Thing is, I’m not anymore busy than anyone else who enjoys sharing knowledge, so it can be hard to keep track of who’s where. Here’s what is on tap, and where you can see (or read) me this month:

  1. SQL Saturday Raleigh is on March 11th, and I’ll be there talking about Replication and how it works. If you’re in the area I’d love for you to come out and tell me hi! Or better yet, stay for the whole day and get some awesome training from people way better at this than me. Hope you can come out!
  2. If you don’t want to or can’t make it to Raleigh, I’ll be giving the same talk at the Cincinnati PASS Chapter meeting on Tuesday, March 21st. Since this is a chapter meeting and I have longer than an hour, I’m hoping to cover much more than I normally do at something like a SQL Saturday: talk some more about how to deal with broken replication, and how replication plays with things like TDE. Plus, it’s nice to get a chance to present in my home state for once! If you live in the greater Cincinnati area I encourage you not only to come out for a fun time, but become a regular member of their chapter.
  3. I have a lot of blog posts in the hopper about replication. It’s been a series I have been working on for a couple months now, so I hope to get at least 3 or 4 of them published this month.
  4. And finally, I have a very exciting project I have been working on outside of work and all this stuff. Something truly amazing, and if all goes well it’ll be a hell of a story to tell. I know that’s cryptic, but trust me, it’ll be worth the wait.

That’s all I can think of for now. Hit me up if you’d like any more info. Thanks!
