In case you missed all the talk about SQL Excursions yesterday, I’ll recap here since a lot of people read blogs but aren’t on Twitter.
Yesterday, with great fanfare I announced the launch of SQL Excursions. You can read all about it on the announcement blog post. The important parts are:
SQL Excursions is designed to provide fun, educational SQL Server training events. The excursions will be held in beautiful locations across the US (and eventually world wide). Each excursion will also have social events for the session attendees as well as spouses, partners, guests, etc. so that they can come to the excursion and not be bored by the technical sessions.
Each excursion will have top notch speakers, typically Microsoft MVPs and/or Microsoft Certified Master recipients. As each excursion is announced the speaker and session outline will be posted as well. What will make this training different from other kinds of training is that while a basic outline will be posted with what the speakers are planning on speaking about, the exact content will be voted on by you, the session attendees. This will ensure that the you receive the sessions that will be of the most use to you in your day to day work life.
If you are on Facebook I’ve got a page there, and if you are on Twitter there’s the official SQL Excursions account (@SQLExcusions). As the excursion is ready to be announced (there’s a bunch of legal stuff which I need to get out of the way) it’ll be announced on Facebook, Twitter as well as the SQL Excursions web page. There’s a news letter which you can sign up for on the home page of the SQL Excursions web page so that the new information will be sent directly to your inbox.
