Happy Monday, everyone. I’ve been heads down with both teaching and customer work, but wanted to pop up to make an exciting announcement: I’m honored to have been chosen once again to deliver a Training Day at SQLBits 2020 which will be in London.

This year’s Training Day will be SQL Server Cloud Fundamentals which is scheduled for Tuesday, March 31. I’ll be covering not only Azure, but Amazon AWS (EC2 and RDS), Google Cloud Platform, and hybrid scenarios – yes, even if you want to partially stay on premises, I’ve got you covered.

I’ve been in touch with the organizers, and right now all things are green for doing the lab that I’ve planned which is a lot of fun (no, really …). You can’t beat hands on experience! If you’ve ever taken one of my classes or been in a previous pre-con at another conference or a Training Day, you know my labs are designed to reinforce the concepts taught that day. No prior experience with any public cloud is necessary.

So my Training Day will be good for those who are not only new to any cloud, but those looking to maximize their existing experiences to be better at what they do.

If you don’t want to miss out on actual hands on experience with cloud stuff in addition to the instruction, reserve your spot early. If you sign up, you’ll get an e-mail closer to the date with instructions on what you’ll need to bring with you to do the lab.

I look forward to seeing you in London at SQLBits.
