Welcome to SQLSaturday #104

"SQL on the Slopes"

Feel a burning need to "Thaw Your SSAS" with our Business Intelligence session track? Perhaps you’d prefer to "Get Cozy with SQL" during our Database Development track. Feel free to "Catch a Lift" on the Database Administration track. See the expert speakers that have already submitted! Check out the list here.

What about Professional Development? Not only will we have professional resume writers on site to review your resumes, but we are also working to have professional technical recruiters available to perform mock interviews with you for immediate feedback! With limited time slots available, an early sign up will ensure you have a priority seat. Don’t forget to bring your resume! When you arrive and check in at the registration table, there will be a sign up sheet for time slots. Please note that it will be on a first come first served basis.

That's not all! During lunch, specific tables will host discussions on:

  • Women in Technology with Karen Lopez (Web | Twitter), Meredith Ryan-Smith (Web | Twitter), and Thomas LaRock (Web | Twitter)!
  • Professional Development
  • Sponsors

But wait! There’s more! Are you ready to test your mettle against fellow SQL peeps in Laser Tag? Why not take a break with a round of Miniature Golf while discussing session highlights? Maybe even show off your prowess in a few frames of Bowling? Not only will we have fantastic sessions, but we’re even throwing in time for activities! Bring your family!  Mr. Biggs’ Family Fun Center provides hours of entertainment for people of all ages!
