My very last morning waking up in Seattle and I finally sleep until my alarm goes off. It was a bitter sweet morning. On one hand I cannot wait to get home and see my better half and return to a normal schedule. I also get to go to work and start planning how to integrate all the things I learned into our environment. On the other hand, this week has been amazing and I don't want it to end. Alas, I packed my bags and said goodbye to the Hilton Seattle Hotel. I met my friends and walked to Lola's for our final breakfast in Seattle. I'm super sad to say goodbye to Lola's donuts!
"DevOps and Decoys - How to Build a Successful Microsoft DevOps Solution Including your Data" was a bit disappointing. This session was very focused on automating a small portion of what DevOps entails. Speaker ended the session 30 minutes early.
"KPIs from the Field" was geared more towards what an analyst would want to see, however, many of the concepts could apply to KPI's a DBA would want to capture. It was not just which KPIs, but also made you think deeper about what story you want to tell when looking at a dashboard.
"Inside SQL Server Containers" was one of the best sessions all week. Once again Bob Ward nails his presentation. I walked out of his session feeling I had a much more solid understanding of what Docker, containers, and Kubernetes can do.
"Exploring SQL Server Join Types - INNER, OUTER, and Much More" was a good session to end on. It was back to basics and a good refresher for someone who doesn't deal all types of joins all too often.
That's a Wrap
I had one last dinner with my #SQLFamily at Pike Brewery. We wandered back to the hotel lounge to kill some time before catching an Uber to the airport. Now I embark on my journey home and all I can think is.... who is going to make me breakfast tomorrow????
I can't thank my employer enough for sending me to the Summit this year. It is always an amazing opportunity and I'm excited to work for a company that sees the value in these community driven events!
Welcome to DBObserver! This blog is meant to be a place for me to share information I find exciting about the database world. I hope you find it exciting too!
