We here at SQLHA had a chat and we decided that besides what we already do already, we want to give back to the SQL Server community at large. We started somewhere and people gave us a helping hand – we’d like to do the same and pay it forward. That’s why we decided for selected deliveries of my in-person Mission Critical SQL Server class we put on, we are going to give away one seat to a lucky winner … and we’re doing it for Chicago from December 9 – 12. Classes like the upcoming London one (and Australia which I just finished) would always be out of scope since those are not put on directly by SQLHA. Remember that there is still a discount (see the link above) for the Chicago class if you want to outright purchase a seat (and I encourage you to sign up!).
If you don’t win for Chicago, don’t fret – we’re looking at the 2014 calendar now and scheduling additional dates in the US and maybe Canada. Outside of North America – stay tuned.
To win the seat is simple: send us an e-mail as to why you think you deserve the seat and how it would impact you. It’s just that simple. Don’t send us one sentence, or just “Pick me!” We also don’t need a tome. As I said above, we want to give back so give us a heartfelt answer as to why you should be chosen. We are not going to make you do anything outlandish or record a video (if you want to, that’s fine but we are not asking for it); we’re going to keep this simple.
