Why I don’t want my presentations recorded!

I was on Twitter a couple of days ago and I mentioned my preference not to be recorded when I’m presenting. That sparked a few questions, so I said I would write a blog post about it. Here it is.

This is a bit of a stream of consciousness, so forgive me if I ramble.

The impact on me!

The primary reason I don’t like being recorded is it has a big impact on me.

The First-Ever WordPress.com Growth Summit Is Coming, and You Won’t Want to Miss It

Join us for The Official WordPress.com Growth Summit on August 11-13! At our first-ever virtual conference you will learn how to build and grow your site, from start to scale. Are you a blogger looking for ways to drive traffic and get more visitors? Are you a small business that would like to start selling more products and services on your site? Are you an artist or creator who would like to learn how to share your work? The WordPress.com Growth Summit will cover these topics (and many more) and provide indispensable advice to help you succeed.

The goal of this event is to inspire, connect you with the tools you need, and help you build your community. Sessions will take place across three tracks: blogging, business, and creative. You can take sessions on any or all tracks, and they’ll focus on four main topic areas: 

My PASS Summit, Wednesday, Nov. 6th Recommendations from DBAKevlar!

I thought I would share the recommendations for the next day that I’m excited about this year at PASS Summit 2019!  There are some really great sessions and as most attendees, I’ve focused the list on topics that I’m interested in or can help me in my role.

Although Tuesday afternoon and evening may kill me with how many events are all planned, there’s still a lot going on for the rest of the week!

Time for #GLOC, #SQLSatDallas, #DataSummit18

The next nine days, I’m traveling to three cities for four events. We’ll just call this the 9-3-4 gauntlet of speaker life. I booked this travel as four, one-way flights to get the itinerary
I needed to make the most of my schedule and will have breaks between each event to make sure I don’t kill myself my last two weeks at Delphix.

GLOC

StarEast, InteropITX and GDPR

I’m getting ready to get on a plane between two events today and have been so busy, that there’s been a break in blogging.  That’s right folks, Kellyn has let a few things slide….

Conferences 2017

Last year I’ve been to a few conferences. At some point I thought I need to record some of the sessions to let more people see them as well.
So I took a cheap action camera & recorded several presentations. Video quality is not good (mostly) due to lighting but still is enough to get an idea of how was it back there in a room.
Here’re links to the videos. Enjoy!

Hatem Mahmoud – Memory Access Tracing/Profiling

Jonathan Lewis – Just Don’t Do It

Panel Discussion at POUG2017

Marcin Przepiorowski – dNFS for DBAs

Neil Chandler – Why Has My Plan Changed

UKOUG Tech 2017

Its been a couple years since I presented at UKOUG.  After taking last year off to prioritize some projects with Delphix, I’m back to speaking and the event committee was gracious enough to offer a goth girl a couple spots on the schedule this year.

The event is in Birmingham, and although I’ve never been there, I’m told by reports, it’s rather rainy and cold this time of year, so I better prepare, (nothing like people selling you on a location…:))

I have two sessions this year, the first one is on Super Sunday:

Path to Better Presentations

I know you’ve read the title and are thinking, “Great, I’m going to learn how to write better presentations!”  The truth is, it’s about how conferences do call for papers timelines, abstracts, as well as how we manage our content.

Timing Is Everything

Iceland is Awesome….and Colder than Utah

I ended up speaking at two events this last week.  Now if timezones and flights weren’t enough to confuse someone, I was speaking at both an Oracle AND a SQL Server event- yeah, that’s how I roll these days.

Upcoming Events and Speaking Engagements- Fall 2016

My sabbatical from speaking is about to end in another week and it will return with quite the big bang.
