We’re really excited about the classes we’ve got coming up and to say ‘thank you’ to the SQL community for all your support of SQLskills.com over the years, we’re running a competition.

The contest is now closed.

The Prize

The prize is a free seat in our class in our 5-day Internals and Performance class in Dallas, February 21-25. If you win the competition, you pay US$0 instead of the $2,995 early-bird price or $3,495 full price. You’ll be responsible for all travel expenses and your hotel bill. The class includes catered breakfast, catered lunch, bottom-less tea and coffee and tons of juicy content :-)

There may also be runner-up prizes…

The Challenge

All you have to do is write a blog post explaining why you want to come to a class taught by us and why you’d make the best use of the knowledge you’ll get from being in the class. We’ll pick what we consider to be the best entry.

The Rules

  • Your blog post must go live before 11.59pm Pacific Time on Tuesday, January 25th, 2011
  • Your blog post must contain a link to the class details
  • You must post a comment on this blog post that links to yours
  • If you’re on Twitter, you must tweet your blog post using the #sqlskills hash tag
  • If you win, you will be able to register for the class at the special price of US$0
  • If you win, you will be responsible for all travel and hotel costs for attending the class
  • If you enter the competition and you win a prize, we will include your name in a blog post announcing the lucky winners
  • If you are a runner-up, you may win an unspecified prize…

The Summary 

We’ll announce the lucky winner on Wednesday, January 26th, 2011.

Good luck and we hope to see you there!
