I am so excited for the next three weeks. This is a trip that has been in the planning for nearly 2 years. I have always loved travelling and wanted to go to Africa, now I have the opportunity of a lifetime: I get to combine my love of travel with my love of SQL Saturdays.
My first stop will be in Johannesburg, where I will have the honor of presenting my Power BI pre-con session, Zero to Dashboard, for SQL Saturday Johannesburg on Friday, September 6, 2019. I am super excited and can’t thank local organizer & fellow Data Platform MVP, Michael Johnson (B | T) enough for this opportunity. Then I get to do two of my favorite sessions, Data Types Do Matter and Profiling Your Data, on Saturday, September 7, 2019.
Second stop on this tour will take me to Cape Town, where I will present my Zero to Dashboard pre-con again on Friday, September 13, 2019. I am super thankful to another fellow Data Platform MVP, Jody Roberts (T), for giving me this opportunity. I will then present the same two sessions as Johannesburg, Data Types Do Matter & Profiling Your Data, on Saturday, September 14, 2019, at SQL Saturday Cape Town.
I will spend about 10 days in Cape Town, visiting friends that are like family before I head back to Johannesburg. From there I travel to Prague for SQL Saturday Prague on Saturday, September 21, 2019. I am still pinching myself because I can’t believe I was selected to speak at this event. I will be presenting my Profiling Your Data session.
I think there are still tickets available for both pre-cons and there are still open registrations for all three events. If you are in any of these areas, please stop by and say, “Hi”. I would love to see you and chat.
