Going on a SQL Cruise!https://sqldatapartners.com/wp-content/themes/crocal/images/empty/thumbnail.jpg150150Carlos L ChaconCarlos L Chaconhttps://secure.gravatar.com/avatar/5e3365b6a313f63d0ad1fd6748a46345?s=96&d=mm&r=g
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!
