That’s Vancouver, Washington, not Vancouver, British Columbia. So SQL Saturday Oregon is held in the state of Washington, not Oregon.
Questionable geography aside, this is a well-attended SQLSaturday, scheduled as it always is the week before the PASS Summit. There’s usually a decent-sized group that attend the SQLSaturday and then go on to PASS Summit in Seattle.
At the SQLSaturday, I’m presenting an introductory session on transactions and how they behave, how transactions interact with SQL’s error handing capabilities and how nested transactions work (they don’t).
