Hey is anyone going to be at the SQLSaturday this week in Orlando or next week in Providence? If you are be sure we see each other.


I will be in Providence


I will also be there. Are you speaking Jack?

Yup. I think I'm doing the old XEvents session. I'm doing some work on it to hopefully make it better.

You know, I really wish I had the time to attend some of these events. Some of them sound so interesting and I think I'd really enjoy getting away for a while and just immerse myself in learning something new. Commitments...sigh.

Is there perhaps a SQL Saturday within easy driving distance to you?

I heard there was one at Lawrence Technological University once. That would have been great, but I didn't hear about it until afterwards. There's nothing close in the near future.

Granted, I wouldn't mind traveling to Milan, Italy and eating my way around the country.

Ed,

Go to www.sqlsaturday.com and see if there is a way to register for event notifications. That way if one pops up near you again, you can see the notification before instead of after the event.

From my experience the best way to find out about new events is to speak at one I get email notifications for every SQLSaturday.

Being on Twitter and LinkedIn (join the tech groups). I know I promote SQLSaturday's I organize on both.

Yeah, but there's got to be some way for interested people to get notifications if they've never attended or spoken at one.

If not, that's a flaw that needs to be fixed.

Ed, there was a SQL Saturday at LTU a couple months back (April, May? Something like that) I did get to this. There's also a (semi-)regular user group that meets at the MS offices over by LTU. These guys: http://semssug.sqlpass.org/

I'm going to tonights meeting, mostly because I saw Jeff Moden on the list of presenters...

If you register at the SQLSaturday site the registration asks you if you want to be notified about PASS events. I'm pretty sure this just means that you get the Connector and other PASS announcements, not just SQLSaturday events as your registration is really for PASS membership. The Connector does list upcoming SQLSaturday's along with other events.

It would be great if you could elect to be notified about events within a certain distance of your location. Because I really don't need to be emailed a notification about events in the Ukraine. If I think I want to go overseas to an event I can look on the web site, but I certainly don't want to miss out on opportunities to attend/speak at/volunteer at events in New England.

I'll try to remember to bring this up at the SQLSaturday Round Table meeting at the Summit next month. We can also mention it to Karla at SQLSaturday - Orlando this weekend.
