I’m setting my course for a new adventure, my mind on a new … undertaking. My apologies if you thought this would be an announcement about SQL Cruise. It’s not, but I am starting a new adventure, and one of the really cool things about it is that a lot of other people will be starting their own new adventure too. I’m a long time believer in giving back to the SQL community, and what better way to do that than to help others on their journey to joining our great SQLFamily?
Back to School
I have been accepted as a new member of the University of Washington Boards of Advisors (both SQL Server Administration and SQL Server Development) for the continuing education program. The advisory boards review content, guide design and recommend updates to ensure the program remains current as the field of study evolves.

About the Courses
Each course is 10 weeks long and delivered online. Each week there will be a one-hour, live online meeting, followed by lecture videos that can be viewed according to each student’s weekly schedule. Attendance during live online meetings is expected. These meetings will be recorded for later viewing and for those unable to make the session due to time zone issues or extenuating circumstances. Throughout each week there will be a forum and exercises related to the current topic and at the end of each week there will be a short quiz.
