Well it was for me anyway. I attended some great sessions and a really interesting discussion on women in technology. My presentation on spatial data went pretty well. Even though it was advertised as “special data” or “spacial data” a few folks showed up. Definitely wasn’t a packed house but got some good feedback. The speaker dinner afterward was really great! I ate up every minute of discussions with Jimmy May, Brad McGehee, Kevin Kline, Rob Bogue and John Magnabosco. They were all very gracious and encouraging of this young newbie. So I am trying to take their advice and up my game a bit. Here I am blogging away and just submitted some sessions to Nashville SQL Saturday (http://www.sqlsaturday.com/51/eventhome.aspx). Here are my slides for the presentation.
