DevTeach Days: Thursday

<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

 

I got to know some interesting speakers and learn some interesting things while at DevTeach this week.  So I thought I’d share my lessons learned with you.

 

Don Kiely - Don gave some really good security sessions at DevTeach.  You can about what Don is up to on his blog: http://sqljunkies.com/WebLog/donkiely/.

 

Peter Debetta – Peter spoke mostly about programming topics relating to SQL Server.  His blog is at http://www.sqlblog.com/. 

 

Randy Dyess – Randy is a prolific author on database security and, one of my favorite topics, Transact-SQL.  There are lots of places to find Randy’s handiwork, including www.sql-server-performance.com/randy_dyess.asp, www.sqlservercentral.com/columnists/RDyess/, and http://blog.database-security.info.

 

Julia Lerman – Julia is a .NET MVP and one of the INETA directors.  She’s a prolific and informative blogger on .NET programming issues.  Check out her blog at www.thedatafarm.com/blog/. 

 

For those who are curious, I was the number one SQL Server speaker last year and also for the event.  This year, I was very much under the weather and I think this had an impact on my scores.  I still wound up scoring quite well with about third overall place among all the speakers with a very high level of attendee response.

 

There are a lot more speakers to learn from at DevTeach.  Check out http://www.devteach.com/Speaker.asp to learn more about them.

 

Cheers!
