Marathon speaking at SQL Saturday Cambridge
Had the please to revisit beautiful Cambridge for this years SQL Saturday. I was going to these two sessions on professional development: "Ask the CEO" and "How to build an it operations expert."
"Ask the CEO" is about my experience as the CEO of the startup Effektor:
Want to start a new business? You have the great idea, but what about creating a business plan, web site, invoicing, CRM, social media and all the other infrastructure you need to operate that great startup. Come and spend an hour with me and see how we did it with our new company Effektor. Ask all the questions you have. I might even be able to answer them.
"How to build an it operations expert" is about the academic work I did in my Master thesis:
My thesis in the Master of IT management program was about the life of IT operations people and how they learn.
Specifically I worked on the following three research questions: 1) What is the difference between a normal IT operations professional and a true expert 2) How can you make your IT operations professionals better 3) What can you do to make your experts thrive
Come and hear about my results and how to make your IT operations professionals grow
But then a week before the event the organisor got a problem with a speaker, who got his visa to the UK declined, and he asked me if I wanted to step in and do two more sessions. I rarely declines a challenge, so I accepted, and did my well-tried "SQL anti patterns" as well as the speak preview of a brand new talk called "WTF with SQL."
Pfeew, let's just say that I needed that beer after the event.
