Immersion training with SQLskills

So, next week I go to Seattle for a week of training with Paul Randal, Kimberly Tripp, Jonathan Kehayias and Joe Sack. This will be my second training class with SQLskills. Last year I attended their IE1 class and it was some of the best training I’ve had. I highly recommend their immersion classes to any SQL Server professional.

Admittedly, I haven’t been looking forward to it even though I expect it will be outstanding. First, I’m tall and flying absolutely sucks.

Here is the legroom I didn’t have on my last flight. Notice my right knee actually is longer than the amount of leg room available.

This is before the considerate person in front of me decided she needed a nap.

Second, they are three hours behind me and I get up early anyway. On Seattle time I will be wide awake at 3AM. Training doesn’t start for another 5 hours about the time I’m ready for lunch. At least breakfast will be good. It was last year anyway.

At any rate, this is one of those posts I’m putting up to shame myself into blogging every day about the training. I’m sure I will be tired at the end of each day (the classes are intense and densely packed with information.) Your brain will hurt at the end of the day.

So, assuming my plane doesn’t auger in or that I don’t get diverted into a romantic get-away from an overly tactilian (if that isn’t a word it should be) TSA agent I’ll be putting up some posts about my training experiences next week.
