Going on a SQL Cruise! 150 150 Carlos L Chacon

I have had a pretty good life on the D list as a DBA here in RVA and I am looking to bump it up a notch–you know, take it to a new level.  I have found so many different SQL Bloggers and community folk that really know their stuff.  Along the way, I came across a group that offers classes on week-long cruise!  SQL Cruise invites a wide variety of talented folks on a cruise and while at sea, they have classes and then use some of the social time to continue discussions, network, and address other questions.

I am going on a Cruise!

I was somewhat hesitant about it–I have never been on a cruise and wasn’t sure it was the right work/play combo; however, after talking to fellow Richmonder (Well, metro Richmond–way metro) Wayne Sheffield, who had gone on a cruise this year and thought it was fantastic, I decided it was worth pursuing.  I had to convince the Mrs, and now we are both headed to a cruise leaving from Miami in January.  SQL Cruise is run by Tim Ford, and while I won’t actually meet him until January, he seems like a decent fellow and he has had some pretty good talent on deck.  This Miami cruise has some folks I am less familiar with, but I am looking forward to meeting them and I have been pursuing their blogs to see what might be in store.

I am sure I will have more to say on this topic as we get a little closer, but if you are interested, check out the FAQ page and wish me well, cause I am going cruising and maybe I’ll see you onboard!

Imagine what’s possible with a dedicated SQL specialist on your team.
