I’ve been talking to Team Orlando recently about following the great example set by Code Camp Orlando for celebrating 10 annual events. Our first was in 2007. That is an impressive run.

This is a follow up to my previous post about Orlando Code Camp. The event team offered oPASS/MagicPASS a free sponsor table and we took them up on it. I wrote a bunch of notes about what worked and what didn’t (below), but the bigger point I want to make is that there are so […]

Last weekend I attended the 10th annual Orlando Code Camp. I think I’ve missed two of those due to scheduling conflict. Ten years, and ten consecutive years, that’s a really good run! Former ONETUG President’s Joel Martinez and Shawn Weisfeld were present along with current President Esteban Garcia. I like that continuity and hope it’s […]

I’ll be attending the Orlando Code Camp this weekend. I know it says “code”, but there is a SQL Server track. Jason Carter will be speaking, as will Kendal Van Dyke, Max Trinidad, Richie Rump, Robert Biddle, and myself. Thirteen tracks of learning! Even if you can’t stay all day I hope you’ll come over […]

I’ll be at Code Camp Orlando on March 22, 2014 doing a presentation on storing credit cards in SQL Server (though a lot of what I’ll talk about applies to any database). Here is the SQL track: 9:00 AM – 9:50 AM 5 TSQL Commands I’ve been Missing – Jason Carter 10:00 AM – […]
