If you haven’t heard yet, SQL Saturday Sacramento is this weekend on July 27th. This is the 2nd annual SQL Saturday event in Sacramento with a spectacular speaker lineup. The Sacramento SQL User Group has done an outstanding job in getting sponsors and bringing in talented speakers and authors from all over the world. Whether you are a database professional or a data analyst looking to expand your knowledge in Excel, there is something for everyone at this event. A wide variety of topics will be presented, including Database Administration, Business Intelligence, Big Data, Cloud, and more. Check out the schedule for yourself at http://www.sqlsaturday.com/222/schedule.aspx. I’ll be giving a session on SSIS 2012 and its improvements for developers and look forward to catching up with you at the event.
Before Saturday, there is also a fantastic full day class on Performance Tuning with Indexes on Friday, July 26th with the well-known SQL author Kalen Delaney. Kalen’s authored several books in SQL Server and is one of the most eagerly anticipated speakers at conferences internationally. You can get more info on her at her website http://www.sqlserverinternals.com/. If you’re definitely interested in taking the class, you can still sign up now and get a seat! It’s $149 and you can pay online by going to http://sqlsat222precon.eventbrite.com/.
Last year’s event was great, but this event looks to top that off pretty quickly. If you haven’t signed up, go to http://sqlsaturday.com/222/eventhome.aspx and register today! Lunch will be provided for a small fee and there will be an after party which will be a great time to network with other SQL Server professionals in the Sacramento area.
Hope to see you there.
