I had intended to post this weeks ago. I guess I'm still postponing my New Year's resolution to stop procrastinating.
We're organizing our first SQL Saturday event in Dallas on May 22nd, hoping to make it an annual event. It will be held at the Region 10 Education Center in Richardson, and we currently have 4 tracks slated: Development, Administration, Business Intelligence and Beginner. I'm particularly excited about the Beginner track since we so rarely find those at the big conferences. This could be a valuable set of sessions, especially for those that are moving from one area of focus to another. If you live in or around the Dallas area and have been hoping to find one of these events near you, here's your chance! The event, like all SQL Saturdays, is free. We are collecting a fee of $10 for lunch onsite. Click here to register. Registration is limited, so don't...um...procrastinate.
Our call for speakers is open and will be open until mid-February. We've already received some great abstracts from well-known speakers, and I hoping we'll see even more. Even if you've never presented before and want to get your feet wet, this is a great opportunity. Everyone has something interesting to share with their peers and this is a good opportunity to do so.
