Presenting at SQL Saturday #70 – Columbia SC


I’m honored to be presenting at SQL Saturday #70 in Coumbia SC 19 Mar 2011! Its always good to travel to places where I don’t have to suppress my accent (what accent? I talk normal. Everyone else sounds funny…) and repeat my order at Waffle House.

It’s always an honor to hang out with The Keeper of the Duck (K. Brian Kelley) (Blog | @kbriankelley) and the cool crew in Columbia. 


There are some stellar presentations from awesome speakers scheduled for the event… plus me! There are too many to mention – check out this schedule and see if you don’t agree that this event is chock full of SQL Server Awesomeness!

My presentation is Designing an SSIS Framework.
In this “demo-tastic” presentation, SSIS trainer, author, and consultant Andy Leonard explains the what, why, and how of an SSIS framework that delivers metadata-driven package execution, connections management, and centralizes logging. Key takeaways: 1) Developers can migrate packages from Development, through their lifecycle, to Production without editing SSIS Connection Managers properties. 2) A metadata-driven approach to SSIS package execution. 3) Demonstration of a centralized logging reporting application.

I’m also doing a lunch time demonstration of Red Gate’s SQL Source Control. I think this will be my first ever lunch-time talk. I’m excited about it because I think Red Gate has a fantastic idea, and they’ve done a great job implementing it with this product.


If you read this blog and will be in the Columbia SC area Saturday 19 Mar, register! Then introduce yourself to the fat guy with a fu.

  1. Don’t sell yourself short. We are privileged to have you, too! Besides, you are one of the few in the community who can compete with Buck Woody to keep your audience in stitches while still learning an awful lot about SQL Server. The rest of us have to work at putting humor into our presentations. You two seem to do it so naturally.
