Fast approaching (yeah just a couple of days out now), is SQLSaturday 246. This year t
he event is sort of in Salt Lake City, being another 10-15 minutes south on the I-15 corridor.
I will be presenting this year. I will also be attending to socialize, network, and learn some good stuff about SQL Server and about some other stuff. This year, the SQLSaturday SLC team is combining with Big Mountain Data to also provide topics on Big Data and other DBMS’s.
If you are still on the fence about coming, check out this email that was just sent.
We wanted to announce a new room/session that we will be holding at SQL Saturday this weekend. We’ve decided to open up a room all afternoon for open discussion. We will be asking specific speakers/experts in the field to help staff the room and help people with technical problems they are having. If you are currently evaluating new technologies or working on a big data initiative this is the place to discuss your ideas with some of the best in the business. They will give you honest feedback on things they have tried and ways to help design what you are looking for. The exact schedule for this room will be available at the event. This will only be scheduled for the afternoon of the event.If you were on the fence about coming to the event and not sure if you saw a session that really met your needs ask yourself if you’ve been in a position in the last few months where you would have loved to bounce and idea off someone or sat down with an expert to ask them what they suggest? This is the perfect chance to have those questions answered.We look forward to seeing you this weekend.Organizing CommitteeSQL Saturday #246 & Big Mountain Data
