SQL Cruise

Wow. You never thought to see those two words together, eh? SQL and Cruise. Well, times changes and who said technical training need to be in a boring place. I just registered myself to attend SQL Cruise!

That’s right. 4-days Western Caribbean Cruise on board Carnival Imagination vessel and have in-depth training within the small group from the awesome SQL guru like Brent Ozar and Tim Ford. Whoever think of the idea is pretty genius. Come on. Boat drink? Small group of SQL Enthusiast? Warm weather and beachy sand? Yes I know. I sound a way too nerdy, but I’m not the only one think it’s awesome. I think a bunch of us DBA think it’s awesome and wish they can be partake on this event and for those who thinks that your work won’t buy in to this, my advise – ASK away. You never know. I know I did and even though I can’t expense the cruise (yes – I tried), I got away with no PTO during this event and registration fee.

So what is it that I’m hoping to gain from this event, you might ask…

Well, other than the obvious – which is more ammo to do my job as a DBA at this very cool food recipe site company, I want to build a networking. I have my own circle of my fellow-dba that I bounce idea back and forth but I want to expand it. There are a bunch of briliants mind out there and they all extend their hand to help out pion like me. Being on the event like this, as well as the previous event that I attended and my incoming event on Fall allow me to enrich my knowledge as well as get to know this awesome SQL guru and meet them in person.

Yes, I know not every company generous enough like mine and allow us the workers to attend cool conferences with paid expenses, but there’s other avenues to be involved in the community. SQLSaturday event for example. 24 Hours PASS and I know company like Quest did a lot of free webcast so there’s absolutely NO reason for anybody not to have the opportunity.

Also – never shy to ask. You never know. If you have a problem on crafting an email on how to convince your manager and the benefit to attend certain event, always ask question around. Tweet your question to #sqlhelp. Go to Brent’s blog and dig out some post about that (I know he have it somewhere there) and I know most event have the section of ‘How to justify the ROI’ for the prospective attendee to use. In one short line – be proactive. Dont’ just sit and wait to be offered to go to a cool conferences and event. Go after them

  5. Juan,Yipes. Rotten to the core. The man in the street has no idea – his main concern is that gasoline might go up another 20 cents. What a world.Thanks for the link. I think.

  6. Sinds ik s,avonds na 9 uur niet meer eet en erbij sport 3 keer in de week ben ik 8 kilo afgevallen en kan ik vrijwel gewoon eten wat ik wil zonder aan te komen. Dat betekend dus niet dat ik elke week junkfood eet en veel snoep maar het fijne is dat ik er ook geen behoefte meer aan heb sinds ik sport.

  10. Caro Daniel RochaJá comen­tou que este pro­jecto lhe exige muito tempo. De facto deve exi­gir muito de si encon­trar pes­soas com histórias de desem­prego tão dís­pares e que tor­nam por isso o seu pro­jecto inter­es­san­tís­simo. Que o seu esforço e tal­ento sejam rec­om­pen­sa­dos a nível pes­soal e profis­sional é o que lhe desejo.

  11. naturally like your web-site but you need to check the spelling on quite a few of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling issues and I find it very bothersome to tell the truth nevertheless I will certainly come back again.

  12. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  13. 1. When ISN’T it an appropriate place to flaunt your freaking awesome bacon taco? 2. Copyright it immediately. 3. The real reason you aren’t an actual hipster is because you read amazing books by Robb Wolf & Mark Sisson. Hipsters don’t care about nutrition.

  15. Hello there! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog. Is it difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? With thanks

  16. Kev, Do you find this guy to be very different than Mike Mentzer high intensity program ? And do you think Mike Mentzer high intensity training way can help you gain the 5LB a week ? Mentzer also believed in static contraction but one set for him was enough, any thoughts on that ? thanks

  17. I agree about the trolls. But I’d like to think that most blogs wouldn’t be subject to that. That’s too bad you missed your chance for that post that had closed comments! I don’t see why, just because it’s an old post, the comments are closed. It’s not likely that the post has become irrelevant.

  19. Well Bawb, that warm comforting cocoon probably seems ideal to them, even if they are trapped within it. Much better than that nasty old changeable real world.I imagine the British press, like ours over here get most of their information from MSLSD and don't question it. I am not sure where the information in the report came from, but I am damn sure it didn't come from Thatcher herself.

  29. Hlavně se mi zdá Milo, že zapomínáte, že ve velmi malých firmách vedoucím je de facto majitel. Pamatujte také, že čím větší firma tím více bonusů pro vedoucí pracovníky, čili mobilním telefonem počínaje na služebním autu konče.

  36. "What the hell was Veronica doing in America?"I was wondering when someone would make that essential point, as I meandered through too many of the the usual "soft bigotry of low expectations" posts.

  37. It’s a bit of a stretch to argue that blogs and Twitter feeds have as much sway as the daily newspapers (although I agree that’s changing pretty rapidly). Regarding the onus on newspapers to label opinion clearly as such and fact-check their assertations, well, with great power and all that…

  40. Unkissed“the house-elf was dressed in a miniature version of a Victorian maid’s dress, down to the starched apron.”HAHAHAHAHAHA!Go Alina… he needs you!She is brave ,that little one. And where the hell is Draco?

  41. I’ve been browsing on-line more than 3 hours today, yet I by no means found any fascinating article like yours. It’s pretty worth sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you probably did, the net can be much more helpful than ever before.

  42. nothing of Indoeuropean as such, and that's the real issue: how come so closely related languages ended up being spoken all the way from the Atlantic to the Bay of Bengal, before Turkic migrations broke the continuity? Sanskrit and Indo-Aryan languages in general are just a part of the puzzle and unless you have a clear consistent model on how IEs migrated from India to Ireland and Portugal, or at least Central Europe, the Balcans and Anatolia, then you still have to look for the origin of IEs elsewhere and the most likely is a series of Neolithic cultures of the southern Urals.
