EVENT UPDATE: The SQL Chicago community is always the best. I had a full house for this session and the audience participation was amazing. Feedback from the audience was that they enjoyed the discussion portion on scaling degrees and certifications to maximize the return on their investment. I didn’t originally plan to share my views on scalability but I’ll definitely include it in my next session on this topic.

Notable Sessions: Here are two sessions that I attended that were great in both content and delivery.
