So much SQL, and so little Saturdays. SQLSaturday is truly a world-class event happening all over the globe. Just this past Saturday, February 02, 2013, SQLSaturday landed South of the Border (relative to the US) in Mexico. Other upcoming world-wide venues include Vancouver BC, Auckland, NZ, Philippines, Portugal and Kiev.and UK.
Bringing us back to its home-country of origin, a month from last Saturday, another SQLSaturday up here on the East Coast, is coming to New Haven, Connecticut. Brought to us by Professor John Flannery and his SQLSaturday team of volunteers, it is a wonderful winter treat of SQL Server education in one of the finest well-known universities in the country.
Coming off a big election year you may have heard about Quinnipiac University – a nationally-Known Polling Institute. Frequently cited by journalists, public officials and researchers, the independent Quinnipiac University Poll regularly surveys residents nationwide about political races, state and national elections and issues of public concern.
And, Quinnipiac is known for its strong sense of community. Their student organizations and Greek chapters are dedicated to community outreach and service. So, what other place would be more suitable to host our the most dedicated of communities, the SQL Server Community. This SQL Server Community Event, SQLSaturday #184, will take place on March 2, 2013 at Quinnipiac University, 370 Bassett Road, North Haven, CT 06473-4201.
An excellent lineup is in store with our favorite SQL Community experts and MVPs. Nineteen wonderful speakers are coming from as far away as Denver to share their knowledge with you. Presenting here is Grant Fritchey, Aaron Bertrand, Thomas LaRock, Mike Hillwig, Jack Corbett, Melissa Demsak and Matt Velic, to name a few. What do you get when you have a Scary DBA and Cranky DBA in the same place? J For a full speaker lineup and presentation schedule click HERE.
They’ve done their best to provide a good mix of topics and skill levels. There are multiple tracks including DB Administration, Development, BI, Professional Development, and one dedicated to SQL Server 2012. We hope you'll find something of interest throughout the day.

I’m excited and they want you to be a part of it.
