We are barely under way with the New Year and it is shaping up to be a busier year already.  Not quite as busy as has been published by the folks at Confio – but busy nonetheless.

The first thing up for me is to get my SQL Learn on.  I will be joining a bunch of geeks and some of their families for a week at sea.  Yes, you heard that correctly – at sea.

I will be SQLCruising out of Miami through the Caribbean.  This should be a good learning/relaxing SQLcation.  Yes Tim, I took a little liberty to add the water ripple to that logo.  Just getting excited to be on the water and rippling water helps.  It’s almost time to go pack for this trip.

Right after I get back from Cruising, I will be in Albuquerque for SQL Saturday 183.  I will be joining people like Steve Jones, Aaron Bertrand, Tjay Belt, Denny Cherry, Ben Miller and a host of other talented people.  You can see the schedule here.

Here is what I am thinking about attending.

Time Presenter Topic
8:30 AM Jeff Renz Data Vault Data Warehouse Architecture
10:00 AM Carlos Bossy Using Columnstore Indexes in SQL Server 2012
11:15 AM I will be presenting
1:45 PM Rob Mandeville Virtualizing our Environment
3:00 PM Michael Fal Exposing the Core: SQL 2012 on Server Core
4:15 PM Chris Shaw Outages: Dispatchers, Cops and Detectives

That brings us to early February.  At some point I expect to retake the Lab exam in February or March.  And then I expect to be presenting at a couple more SQL Saturdays within the next few months.

SQLCruise Contest

For those who may not have heard, there is training for SQL Professionals called SQL Cruise.  You can find more info here.

There is a bit of interesting news for an upcoming cruise.  There is a contest asking you to elaborate your mad SQL Skills and how you saved the day.  The contest is sponsored by Idera.  Here’s the problem as I see it with that contest though.  In order to participate you have to enter through Idera’s facebook page.  I’m not a fan of that site.  I don’t have an account and I won’t be signing up – not even for SQL Cruise.  For any of you who are interested – enjoy and good luck.  Believe me, I was stoked about the contest until I read that blurb about having to submit via Facebook.
