[EN]/[NL] T-7 Days till my next session… at SDN Event in Zeist

LOGO__SDN2015Zeist

Het SDN Event van vrijdag 11 september is het volgende SDN Event van 2015. We hebben dan een vol programma met uiteenlopende sessies. Deze keer hebben we als speciale gasten Claus Nielsen uit Denemarken met PowerShell gerelateerde sessies, Tobiasz Janusz Koprowski origineel uit Polen maar wonend in Engeland over SQL Azure databases en Stephen Ball uit Engeland over Delphi in de Cloud en IoT. Kortom een mooi gevuld event met super onderwerpen verdeeld over 4 volle tracks.

A week in advance announcement, I’m very happy to be one of the three foreign speakers at Autumn’ Conference of Software Development Network in Zeist (The Netherland). Everything began two months ago when Roel Hans BethlehemTechnical Director and SharePoint Architect at Rapid Circle {TWITTER|LINKEDIN|FACEBOOK|BLOG} send me kind request as a result of sending a birthday wishes. This case is a proof – be open, connect to community and you will be awarded sooner or later. I checked my calendar and said YES! It’s very good beginning for my new speakers season. Season Six. It’s not new event. This community – even brand new for me – is well known in The Netherlands.

Four rooms, several international speakers, Azure Services, PowerShell, Delphi, Security, XML, AML and more. Here is the list of all sessions:

LOGO__FORG2015I’m very very happy to be Friend Of Redgate. I’m member of this fantastic program for last three/four years. My first “Friends of Redgate” sencence appears in my mailbox in fall of 2011. Since this moment I’m trying to be active in this way. My stardard job as Friend is part of evangelization – not as good as my friends Grant Fritchey {TWITTER|BLOG} or Steve Jones {TWITTER|BLOG}, but because they both always inspiring me, I’m trying to be better year by year – is speaking and talking about arround, with Redgate’s ingeniously simple stuff. Speaking continuosly need improvement. Session writing, demo testing, then presenting and collecting opinions is a hard job. Sometimes I failed, sometime I rocking. But improving my session is my primary goal for this year. Not only by quantity but with quality.

In next two weeks I will spend almost three days in Redgate Headquarter in Cambridge. First day will be oriented for two main focus:

     >> Friends of Redgate Things: opinions, ideas, project team exchange, project and product managers talk, constructive advices and more

     >> Business Perspectives: because I just moved to England, hope that collaboration with Redgate could be alittle closer than before

Next two days it will be focusing for intensive learning workshops in Database Lifecycle Management (DLM) Training mode:

    Database Continuous Integration – Ready to do database continuous integration (CI) as part of Database Lifecycle Management? Then this is the workshop for you. You’ll learn how to: || Link your source control repository to a build system || Trigger database builds automatically when you make a change || Use Redgate’s DLM tools to test your database changes || Lay the foundations for package-based deployment of your database.

Both workshops will be provided by one of two Redgate DLM Trainer Tom Austin >>  Tom has spent the last 7 years working at Redgate, focusing on our DLM tools. He’s worked closely with customers from many different industries to improve efficiency and productivity in their development environments. Recently he has been involved in webinars focusing on database versioning using SQL Source Control
