Words of Wisdom

July 7, 2008 at 8:04 am (PASS) (, , )


Every week the Database Weekly Update comes out from SQL Server Central. There are always good things to read there. Links to interesting tid-bits of information posted by really smart people. One of them that jumped out at me this week, to the point that I read it out of order, was a blog entry by Andy Warren. If you ever get the opportunity to listen to Andy speak, jump on it. He’s great. His writing is wonderful too.
Anyway, he wrote an entry giving advice on how to break in to the national scene as a speaker. I know I dwell on this WAY too much, but I’ve been given the opportunity to speak at PASS this year. Notice I said “been given.” I don’t think I earned it quite the way I should have. Regardless, based on my experience so far, Andy’s advice is very good. If you too want to break in at that level, reading what this man (read his About page if you need incentive) has to say is well worth your time.
