[EN] T-2 weeks till ITCamp–Are You Ready?

LOGO__ITCamp2014One year ago I visited Capitol of Transylvania first tme. Cluj-Napoca. Beautiful, tourist-friendly city in Romania (but close to Hungary). I had great pleasure to speaking for dozens of hundreds attendees which chosed my session. And it was great success. I got really great feedback for my session not only from organizers, but (which is most important) from attendees.

This year I will back to IT Camp, but for more days. I’m really happy to inviting for my thee moments at this conference:

  • Wednesday, May 21st – I will presenting my first full Pre-Conf. That’s exciting, and I’m very proud to got invitation from Tudor Damian {BLOG | TWITTER} for this action. My full-day workshop subjest is simple: High Availability of SQL Server in the context of Service Level Agreement. And I’m only one non-local speaker for pre-conf day, all other three experts are:
  • Agile in practice (Radu Vunvulea)
    Automating your IT infrastructure using PowerShell (Razvan Rusu)
    Mobile Device Management with Windows Intune and SCCM (Adrian Stoian)

  • Thursday, May 22nd – first conference day with four tracks and many not speakers not only from Romania, but from many place from the world. In blue line at 5PM I will presenting session: SQL Server Source Control about controling code for SQL Server Development, using Visual Studio and more, Cloud (and no-cloud) Source Control Application, and RedGate Software.
  • Friday, May 23rd – second and last day of conference. I hope that between those two days of conference I will find time for visiting city center. Early morning at 9AM in green line I will presenting session: SQL Azure from Plan, To Backup, To Cloud about Cloud Services and Backup and Restore features.
