I’ll be speaking at the upcoming Orlando Code Camp on March 26, 2011, at Seminole State College in Lake Mary. I’ve included a copy of the schedule, a truly awesome array of topics and talent! Jack Corbett & I will also be doing our bit to raise awareness about SQLRally by handing out flyers and […]Read more "Speaking at Orlando Code Camp on March 26, 2011"
I don’t generally post bits of this and that, but I’ve accrued a few things that I wanted to share, so here goes: Silicon Valley Code Camp has more than 3000 registered. Wow, that’s an awesome sized event. I’ve forwarded that to the PASS marketing team, we should find a way to participate and I […]Read more "A Mish Mash of Stuff"
Lots of events in Florida, easy to lose track! The Tallahassee Code Camp is October 23, 2010, details at http://www.tallycodecamp.org/ (nice looking site!). The Tampa Code Camp was just announced for November 13, 2010, and the web site should be live by tomorrow at http://www.tampacodecamp.com.Read more "Upcoming Florida Events"
Overall it was a great event, attendance in the 350-400 range. Boxed lunches instead of pizza (good!), not much in the way of drinks/breakfast (not so good), check-in ran smoothly. Everything seemed to run smoothly. Team Jax did a nice job! The speaker party was a cigar bar, the second year in a row. I […]Read more "Notes on Jacksonville Code Camp 2010"
I’m leaving later today for the not too bad drive to Jacksonville for the sixth annual Code Camp. I’ve got one presentation on the schedule (statistics) and I see a whole track on BI, plus one on complex events and another on reporting services. It’s also a mini vacation, taking the family for the weekend […]Read more "Presenting at Jacksonville Code Camp"
John Dunagan and team are once again leading their annual Code Camp on September 25, 2010 in Estero, FL (think Naples and you’re in the neighborhood). Somehow I’ve never made it to this one yet, in part due to the long drive from Orlando and in part to September just always seems busy for me, […]Read more "Registration Open for SW Fla Code Camp on September 25, 2010"
Bayer White has announced the call for speakers for the 2010 Jacksonville Code Camp to be held August 28, 2010 at the University of North Florida. They usually have a sql track – don’t think it’s all just developers attending! It’s a dilemma for me, falling the weekend after Nashville SQLSaturday #51. I’ve been trying […]Read more "Jacksonville Code Camp Call for Speakers"
I arrived about 7:15 and already quite a few people on hand. Registration was moved to inside this time, just inside the cafeteria, and seemed like a much better traffic flow. Few things I noted on arrival: Attendees didn’t receive name badges (this really helps speakers & networking) Breakfast set up looked good, no decaf […]Read more "Notes from the Orlando Code Camp March 2010"
Isn’t free enough? If you go to a free event do you have a right to complain? Or, if you lead a free event, should you have the expectation that attendees will appreciate all the hard work and ignore minor problems? A thorny topic for today! The short answer is that even free events have […]Read more "Free Events – It’s All About Expectations"
