[Presenting] Double your TheBakingDBA exposure! Come to the Kansas City SQL Saturday!

Just got the email - I'm presenting at SQL Saturday 300, Kansas City!

Despite the name, this is the same presentation I've been giving (aka SQL Watchdog) - I submitted this before changing my title.  We'll be adding a few other features as well, based on past suggestions from both audiences as well as my own internal folks.

It sounds like it'll be awesome - Bob Ward is speaking, they're going to have a BBQ Crawl on Friday, sounds like there's an event at the ballpark, there's a group going to a local theme park to ride the coasters...

Man.  Cannot wait.

[Presenting] Woot! I'm presenting at SQL Saturday 309, Oklahoma City!

Pleased and proud to have been selected to present at #SQLSatOKC, aka SQL Saturday 309, aka SQL Sat Oklahoma City.  Doing my presentation (continually updated) on Event Notifications, and capturing DDL changes (along with other fun stuff like Deadlocks and Errorlogs) in real time, and what you can do with that.

As always, I'm trying to figure out how to include all the details necessary to do it, not TOO many details, and add some fun stories on "heh, look how I saved the day". 

While actually remembering to breathe - a lot of details, and honestly, I get excited about presenting it.  The goal is to make the passion shine through, without seeming like a Spaz or newbie speaker.
