If you happen to be in the Phoenix metro area this weekend make sure to come out to Desert Code Camp (http://apr2011.desertcodecamp.com). I will be speaking on SQL Server Development focusing on Stored Procedures, Function and Common Language Runtime (CLR).
This will be the first time I have attended/presented at Desert Code Camp myself and I am extremely excited. After speaking at the first SQL Saturday #47 back in February I got the buzz supporting the local tech community and taking advantage of the opportunity to share and network with other professionals that work close to me. Twitter, Facebook and all of the other social options are great but nothing compares to the in person interaction. The best part of all is that these events are free to the public allowing anyone to come and learn no matter the level of experience.
Desert Code Camp is of particular interest as it offers a wide variety of sessions in all sorts of technologies giving others that would like to learn SQL a chance to branch out and also so that I can attend sessions and meet people in other areas of IT that I have not experienced.
I hope to see you there. If you do come you can hit me up on twitter (@speedracer) or just drop by my session at 11:30 in room IRN-124.
