Today started for me with the SQL Saturday Round Table. Andy Warren led the conversation around how SQL Saturdays continue to grow and improve.
One of the key points is that we want to see SQL Saturday expand into new cities. Are you interested in having one? Check out http://sqlsaturday.com for details. (And of course, I am working with SQL Saturday #99 in Minnesota and hope to see many of you there: http://sqlsaturday.com/99/eventhome.aspx.)
Quick sidebar to SQL Saturday 99 attendees. One of the new features you should take advantage of is the Schedule Builder on the event site. I encourage you to get on and build your schedule for the event.
After the SQL Saturday round table was done, I spent some time with other organizers and look forward to working with them in the future. I managed to invite myself to a couple other organizational meetings for PASS chapter leadership. Do you participate in your local SQL Server/PASS User Group? There are great learning and networking opportunities at these events. Join us sometime at at the Minnesota SQL Server User Group (http://minnesota.sqlpass.org). Looking for a user group in your area check out http://www.sqlpass.org for groups near you.
Enjoyed the Welcome Reception and follow up at SQL Karaoke. Looking forward to the first full day.
