I'm a data architect in the financial services & information security industry; I specialize in getting disparate systems to share information. I'm also a chapter leader for AtlantaMDF, the local user group for PASS (the Professional Association for SQL Server).
Noticed on Twitter that you are presenting soon, you might want to post it on here. I'll have to see about trying to stop by and listening to what you have to say. Thanks for all your thoughts on our SSIS stuff, we definitely made some headway but then Eric received an offer for 100% telecommute position, so that project has been slowed down a lot as of late with his departure.
Will you add the MS SQL groups event for July to the calendar here? Also, you guys have a group on here, if you join it, I'll make you the admin.
Traffic is up 450% on the site. I'm going to start looking into ways to giving group leaders analytics for the events and groups. Do you think thats an extra added service that might be of value to group leaders on here.
Ah yes, the great vacation conundrum. You get back, you feel rested, ready to conquer the next few months of work no problem. Then...
You realize you've been away a week, and the work didn't stop coming in. Pretty soon halfway into your first week back, you've used up all of your vacation energy just trying to catch up and then you need vacation again worse than ever.
Not sure why, but you holding the paper with your name on it, is absolutely hilarious. Great to have you here, as I've already learned a new acronym (VLDB), and you know how us tech types love new acronyms.
