Had an amazing time at SQL Saturday in Vancouver!

If you have never been to a SQL Saturday event, I highly suggest that you do! You can find an upcoming event here and following this event on twitter #sqlsat114 

As stated earlier in one of my posts this SQL community is really one of the bright spots in the IT field. I was so happy to meet and talk with a lot of people that I was following through books and blogs. I also want to stress, that if you are not on Twitter, you are really missing out on reaching out to these great people, plus the #SQLHelp aspect.

I also ended up meeting some great people and wanted to mention a few of them for others who may not be aware of them:

Steve Stedman (Blog | Twitter) presented an awesome presentation on Using SSRS Reports to Analyze SQL Server Health.  He also made this great post about the day!

Donabel Santos (Blog | Twitter) also did a great job presenting and encouraging people to use SQL and PowerShell. You can review her information here: SQLSaturday #114 in Vancouver – PowerShell and ETL with SSIS

Seriously, do yourself a huge favor and please join your local SQL PASS user group. There are a lot of great people to meet and it is free… all it takes is a little bit of effort to just attend a meeting or two. The rewards are really remarkable and it is a great community to be a part of, but it becomes better when you start giving back to the community!

Thank you Vancouver for putting on a great SQL Saturday and allowing me to visit Canada for the first time!
