It was a really busy summer and ended with me returning after a week of vacation in Singapore.  What should I do after a 17hr flight and jet lag?  Two webinars and a SQL Saturday event!  What better way to get over jet lag and get my game back on and just jump back in!

I started out by having a webinar this morning on “DBA to DevOps to DataOps- the Revolution.”  I had a feeling with the jet lag, I’d be done faster than I’d hoped, but with the amount of questions from the over 400 attendees, it was an awesome one hour with everyone.  I focused on the important topic of data gravity and how the role of the DBA can evolve to be more productive for the business.

There were reference links that I knew were important and the PDF slide deck doesn’t provide that, so please refer to the following links below to catch up with all the delphix blog posts I’ve written on this topic:

Blog Posts-

FYI-  there are two more blog posts that will be published shortly on, so stay tuned for those.

Webinar Recordings

On Thursday, I’ll be presenting with Oracle, “The DBA Diaries” focused on the cloud.  It should be a great conversation on where DBAs are in the scheme of the cloud and how our role is evolving.

To round up the week, I’ll be presenting at SQL Saturday Denver, my local SQL Saturday event for the SQL Server community!  Delphix is sponsoring this awesome event and I’m looking forward to presenting, (as is Tim at this event.)

Sunday–  I SLEEP!  No, I lie… I’ll be uploading all my code, video and content for ODTUG’s Geekathon.   Then I sleep. 🙂

After looking at my upcoming schedule for 2017, I realized that I need to start posting on where and what conference(s) I’m at regularly.

With that realization, I present “Where in the World is Goth Girl” posts that will help keep track of me, (before my husband has a homing device surgically implanted in my brain….:))

This week I’m in Manhattan for Data Summit 2017, presenting on Wednesday on Database Virtualization.  As soon as I’m done presenting on Wednesday, I’m heading to the airport to fly to Cleveland for the second day of NEOOUG, Great Lakes Oracle Conference, (GLOC) 2017 to present twice on Thursday morning before we fly out that evening for home.

I have two slide decks that I’ve just gone through and revamped for the events and I’m rather proud of my entertaining and aestethically pleasing, powerpoint accomplishment.  Seriously, how can you not love slides like this?

I’ll be speaking on Database Virtualization and the Cloud at both events and then my second session at GLOC will be on Test Data Management for DBAs.  As many people know- I try to connect with as many people as I can while at events, so if you see a Linkedin connection or Twitter follow from DBAKevlar, it’s just me being social!
