See you in Seattle!

My Summit abstract was accepted! I’m still a little surprised, but I’m also excited (okay, and a little nervous) to once more be presenting at the PASS Summit. If you’ll be at Summit this year — and I really hope you are, as it’s well worth the time and cost — then please make sure to say “hi” if you see me wandering around. Aside from the *excellent* content, my favorite thing about Summit is getting to meet so many great people. :)

In other news, I’ve once more switched roles within GoDaddy. For the half dozen folks who’ve been following my blog from the beginning, you may remember that I originally started out on the traffic team working with tuning and VLDB’s, then took an opportunity to switch to the BI team to learn more about OLAP. Recently, a new team has been formed under the BI branch that’s tasked with developing a massive hybrid data warehouse (by hybrid, I mean half OLTP and half OLAP). “How massive is it?” Well, it’s SO massive, we’re expecting to be store petabytes of data when everything is said and done. I’m happy to say I’ll be on this new team. So yes, that means we have an opening for an OLAP developer. We’re also hiring SQL Server DBA’s. We have offices in Cedar Rapids, Denver, and the Phoenix area. Send me an e-mail at michelle at sqlfool dot com if you’re interested in learning more about this great job opportunity and company.

Lastly, I want to announce that SQL Saturday 50 is now open for registration! SQL Saturday 50 will be held in Iowa City, IA on Saturday, September 18th. We’re almost at 50% of our attendance capacity, so if you’re interested in attending, please register soon.

That’s it for now. I promise that my next blog post will be uber technical. :)
