SQL Saturday – The Spring Season

This Saturday February 23 I’ll be in Silicon Valley speaking on Big Data for SQL Server DBAs for a SQL Saturday event.  The SQL Saturday events have become so prevalent that it I see them as being grouped together by season.  For me the spring season started a couple of weeks ago in early February when I went to Albuquerque for their inaugural event, which was very well put together.  I was impressed with the participation, considering the size of the city, and the enthusiasm.

I went to the Silicon Valley event at the Microsoft offices in Mountain View, CA last year and it was a first-rate experience too.  Everything was great, including the speakers, the food, and location.  If you’ve been wondering what a SQL Saturday is all about, make it a point to attend one this spring.  If you are in the USA, there will be one near you no matter where you live.   There are also numerous events planned internationally.

I know Mark Ginnebaugh, the organizer of SQL Saturday in Silicon Valley, is putting together another fantastic event this year.  I hope to see you there!
