Down in DC, with SQLSaturday 173!

By Robert Pearl, 2012/12/06

This Saturday, major event that will shake the halls of power gets under way for an all-day non-stop super event.  Bringing real change to Washington, hundreds of professionals will be converging on the Capital for a day to influence the future careers of so many brethren.  No, this isn’t the Presidential inauguration we’re talking about, it’s SQLSaturday #173.  So, let’s get down in DC, for SQLSaturday #173.  The fantastic filibuster features so many of our sql friends, family, MVP’s and experts dealing out unfettered knowledge of all things SQL with their excellent presentations!

This special event is brought to us by Founder / CEO / Lead Consultant at WaterOx Consulting, Inc. Christopher Bell, and the SQLSaturday #173 team.  I congratulate him and his team for putting together such a great lineup of speakers, sponsors and events.  Check out the highlighted links for the schedule sessions and times.  Come down to DC, and you will get an awesome treat with four separate professional tracks of learning.  The tracks offer something for everyone, 2 BI tracks, 2 DBA, 1 Developer, and 1 Professional Development track.

So many of my friends and #SQLFamily  will be there like Tim Radney, Joe D’Antoni, Mike Walsh, Bill Pearson, Andy Leonard, John Sterrett, Michael Corey and Wayne Sheffield.  Other notables like Brian Moran, Jason Hall, Eddie Wuerch, along with Ryan Brickey and Kevin Goode educate us on the professional development side – how we as SQL and technical professionals can get started, improve, excel and succeed in our technical careers.  Allen White, Rob Volk, Stacey Misner , Kevin Boles, Konstatin Melamud, Jason Horner,  Jason Thomas, David Klee, Kevin Goff, Geoff Johnson, Steven Wright, Ira Whiteside, Derek Dai, and Carlton Ramsey – to name a few.  Actually, I think I got all the speakers with due credit :-)

Don’t miss the interactive panel discussions for the various tracks as well!  So, get down to DC for a full day of training, and the latest information about SQL Server 2012, BI and so much more!

SQLSaturday is a training event for SQL Server professionals and those wanting to learn about SQL Server. This event will be held Dec 8 2012 at the Microsoft MTC , 5404 Wisconsin Ave Suite 700, Chevy Chase, MD 20815.
