#SQLSat271 - Jan 25, 2014, Albuquerque - Woot!

I'm proud to announce that I will again be presenting at a SQL Saturday, this time at SQL Saturday 271 in Albuquerque, New Mexico, on January 25th 2014. 

I'll again be presenting on using Event Notifications to track code (aka DDL) changes.  I'll be showing a soup-to-nuts solution you can use, including things like Errorlog tracking, automated emails, SSRS reports, multi-server setups, SSMS plugins, and (what I've been working on lately), a fully automated TFS checkin process, where it automatically checks in any changes within 5 minutes of that change occurring.  You can baseline your servers and see what changes get made over time.  Your devs will love and hate you. 

I'm psyched, honestly - 2 coworkers expressed interest in attending another, and that gave me the push to submit.  It looks like there will be a couple great pre-cons, I'm looking forward to meeting some acquaintances again, and meeting new friends.  Hope to see y'all there!
