YOU ARE NOT ALONE

When I first started as a DBA, I felt alone.  While Google is great, I wasn’t always sure of myself.  Was I making the best decisions?  I spent way too much time getting frustrated by what I didn’t understand.  For several years I had responsibilities beyond just the database and I wished there was a way I could get up to speed on certain topics and have others I could reach out to when I needed help.  I wanted a network beyond my co-workers I could trust.  

I compare my SQL experience to being on a hiking trail.  On a trail you are not familiar with, it can be confusing where to go and easy to get lost.  When you have a fellow hiker (compañero) who knows the way, it makes it easier to know you are headed in the right direction.  I think everyone needs good compañeros on their journey.

I have spent the last 12 years meeting great people who do amazing things in SQL Server and you know what?  I don’t feel alone anymore–I have lots of SQL compañeros.  I want to help YOU on your SQL journey so I brought together some of the best compañeros I know and put together a conference format so you can learn, have fun, and make new friends at the same time.  

I hope you will join us.

JOIN US ON THE SQL TRAIL

We started a weekly podcast to engage with others working on SQL Server.  Now we are bringing that conversation to you. Chat with experts in the field in the same friendly way that we do. We’ll bring the content, you bring the questions.

 Come, and join us on the SQL trail. You won’t regret it.

Conference Agenda

ACTIONABLE CONTENT

The Compañero Conference is a two-day, single track conference designed to help you use the technology you already have.  This conference is geared towards technology professionals managing SQL Server versions 2008-2014.  We can speak about new features, but we want to make sure you can start using the content we present right away.

To use our hiking analogy–we want to talk about this paths we are currently on, not the ones it will take a few years to get to.

By the end of the conference you will be able to identify areas you want to address at work, have a set of tools available to fix them, and have contacts to reach out to if you have problems. 

What are you waiting for?

Compelling Reasons to Consider

There are lots of conferences and some are in some pretty cool locations.  Why choose ours?  I have come up with a few reasons I hope you will find compelling.  

  1. Everyone is in the same track.  This means the talk quality is much higher as the event is curated.
  2. We are capping the conference at 60 attendees.  Almost like a training class, but with the organization of a conference.  You will get to know others–and that person just might have the answer to the question you haven’t been able to answer.
  3. Speakers aren’t put on a pedestal.  Sure, we will have MVPs there, but they won’t make you feel silly asking a question and want to have the conversation.
  4. The talks are actionable.  We will ask each speaker to provide a way for you to implement what you have learned as soon as you get back to your office.
  5. Our conference is introvert friendly.  Sure, there will be something for those that want to ham it up a bit, but that won’t describe most of us.
