All about that Ace, that Ace

Well, after taking the month of July off from travel you’d think I would be well rested and ready to roll again. Rested yes! Ready to roll is debatable. I just love summer and I love being at home with my pups and my very busy garden. This has been a crazy bountiful growing season. But enough about that.

So where I am off to this month? Indianapolis! Indiana is home to us and we enjoy going back for a quick visit and supporting the local community. Indy was our first user group experience. So on 8/11 if you want to get some free #SQLLearning join us at #SQLSatIndy

Houston, this ACE is clear to land.

So excited to be heading to Houston once again! In 2014 I was in Houston for both SQLSaturday and TechEd. It’s really about time I make it back there for their awesome event. I’m looking forward to hanging out with this guy and hopefully learn a bit more about island time.

So what am I presenting on this time? 45 Min to build your first SSRS report. This session has gained popularity again, I am attributing that to the fact that no one really presents SSRS anymore it’s all about the new shiny (Power BI). If you’ve never used SSRS this session is for you. I try to give . . . → Read More: Houston, this ACE is clear to land.

An ACE in Pensacola

I am super excited to be heading to Pensacola for #SQLSat734. It’s approximately a 6 hour drive, so we hope make it into town mid-afternoon on Thursday. While we are staying at this same hotel, I’m positive my view will not be as great. 😉

Last year I surprised everyone who knows me. You see I’ve never been a big fan of seafood. But I arrived on like Wednesday and ate seafood at every opportunity. There were so many fun places I can’t wait to revisit some of them.

I will be presenting “Introduction to Business Intelligence” with my husband Kerry Tyler [ B | T ]. This session . . . → Read More: An ACE in Pensacola

Out and Acing again

Quick Update

Well if you haven’t heard I had to have surgery on my knee. It appears that I had a pretty messy meniscus and on 3/19 I had it cleaned up. The first week wasn’t fun and finding out that it might take 4-6 months before I’m back to 100% normal didn’t make this process any easier. It looks like I’ll do a few more PT sessions next week before heading out of town. But I am feeling pretty confident in my abilities and have come to terms with the things that I can’t.

Adventures of being an Idera Ace

Well I’m not sure I can tell you how excited I am about this next adventure as an Idera Ace. This #SQLSaturday is one I’ve wanted to be at for some time but could never get it into our schedule. For this trip I will be heading close to home but not quite home.

Hopefully you can join me in CHICAGO! While I have made several visits to Chicago, I’m pleased as punch to finally making it to #SQLSatChicago. This event always waitlist early and has a great turnout. I feel very honored to be selected to be apart of this wonderful event.

Where am I Acing to next?

TAMPA!

I’ll never be able to express how grateful I am for the opportunity and for the supplement to my travel budget that Idera Software has given me. Thanks Idera for making me an ACE! Hopefully soon I will get go work on some technical post but today I am here to talk about my next trip. #SQLSatTampa.

This is a new adventure for Kerry and I and we are super excited to hang out with a few of our dearest friends while we are there. Nothing like a little dose of #SQLFamily right before my birthday! We are heading down a day or two early and catching some sunshine, . . . → Read More: Where am I Acing to next?
