It seems like this winter is dragging along, especially if you live anywhere where it snows, as I do here in Cleveland.  But at the same, I cannot believe that our SQLSaturday event is less than two weeks away!  If you live within a couple hours of Cleveland, I strongly recommend that you check out our event, which is on Saturday, February 8, 2014 in Westlake, OH.  You can find the schedule here, but let me list a few highlights for you:

  • 42 sessions
  • 38 different speakers
  • 18 sponsors and counting
  • 13 SQL Server MVPs
  • 4 SQL Server MCMs
  • 2 Microsoft PFEs

We have an amazing line-up of speakers and I am so thrilled with the content our event will provide to our local SQL Server community.  We have speakers coming from all over the US – Washington, Colorado, Minnesota, Georgia, and Massachusetts – to name just a few states from which colleagues will be traveling.    Thank you to our speakers that will brave the cold, snow, and wind to come to Cleveland (I’m hoping for a heat wave where we get above freezing, but let’s be honest, Mother Nature hasn’t been very kind this year).

In addition to our fantastic day-of sessions, we also have two pre-cons for which you can still register!  Argenis Fernandez will be hosting A Day of SQL Server Internals and Data Recovery, and Allen White will present Automate and Manage SQL Server with PowerShell.  Registration details can be found on our main SQLSaturday page, and the cost for these pre-cons is a great deal.  Both speakers have been selected for pre-cons at the PASS Summit previously, and the rate for those events is much higher.  Don’t miss this opportunity!

If you have any questions about our SQLSaturday, please don’t hesitate to contact us.  We hope to see you next Saturday, February 8th, and until then, stay warm!
