Regular readers of this blog know that I was one of the speakers at our Belgian SQL Server Days event last Thursday and Friday.
I have to admit that I underestimated the amount of work a little: working full time for a customer, preparing a one-hour session, preparing the SQL Server Days (luckily we’ve got a great team at the SQLUG for this part!) and still having some kind of personal life as well.
On day two we had the pleasure of welcoming 279 attendees all ready to attend sessions in our five different tracks. And about 70 of those people were in my room!! I had practically no stress before or during the start of my session, except for the moment when I had to get the microphone wire attached to my head somehow (luckily the technician was still around!)… In fact, I was more stressed for my dry run session three days earlier.
Would I do it again? Ow yeah, absolutely! Even though it requires quite some time in preparation, the applause at the end of the session makes up for that!
And now the moment you’ve all been waiting for: my slides and demos are available for download from my Skydrive.
For those seeking more information, here are some references related to my session content:

Have fun, and see you next time!
