When I think about Baltimore, I think about Edgar Allan Poe. Baltimore was Poe’s one-time home, and in fact there is a museum located in a home in which he once lived. I’ve been a Poe fan since high school, and am looking forward to seeing some of the Poe-related sights when I’m in town next month.
Why am I going to be there, you might ask? As it turns out, I’m also taking part in the SQL Saturday event in Baltimore on May 9th, and I’m doing a full day presentation on SQL Server Integration Services on Friday, May 8th before the SQL Saturday event. My Friday presentation will actually be just down the road in Chevy Chase, at the Microsoft office there.
To be clear, Edgar Allen Poe probably won’t show up at the training on Friday. However, if you want to learn about SSIS, I’ll be happy to deliver the training in my best Poe-like voice. I might even buy you a drink (anything but amontillado) afterward.
Registration is open for the SQL Saturday event as well as my full day of SSIS training on Friday. There is an early bird discount available for Friday’s training, but only until April 24th. After that date, the discount shall be Nevermore.
