SQLSaturday#235 in NYC Announced!

{Start Circus bumper music here}  LADIES and GENTLEMEN; SQL SERVER PROFESSIONALS of ALL AGES, Come one, come all!  Get ready for a sizzling, stupendous, spectacular, super SQLSaturday special event!  You waited, you asked, you pleaded, when will New York host another SQLSaturday again! We wait no more, we ask no more, and stop pleading will you?  On August 17, 2013 – save the date – prepare to be amazed as folks from all over the planet descend to our fair city to partake in a grand helping of learning, lunching and laughing with colleagues, friends, and sqlfamily.  Announcing (well you might’ve heard already) SQLSaturday #235!

The site is now live, so for more details please visit our event page.  So, as of yesterday, the CALL FOR SPEAKERS & SPONSORS is now officially open!!  Please submit your sessions by clicking on the highlighted “speakers” link.  Any companies interested in sponsoring our extraordinary event, click on the highlighted “sponsors” link.  Any and all inquiries about the event should be sent to sqlsaturday235@sqlsaturday.com .

If there is any doubt how wonderful this event is going to be, we have received numerous emails day one, and over 30 speaker submissions already before this blog was published!  We expect true quality learning from our favorite SQL Server superstars including, MVPs, MCMs, PFEs and other subject matter experts.   We expect over 350+ attendees (let’s make it even more), over a dozen sponsors of our preferred vendors, and grandiose giveaways and superbulous SWAG (I made that word up :-)

This great day of everything SQL will offer a chance to network with so many attendees, and learn from the best experts in the field, with multiple tracks of technical training and professional education.  Nowhere in the world except for SQLSaturday NYC can you get such valuable instruction in one day, and literally an opportunity to change the course of your career forever! 

So what better way to spend a summer day in one of the largest venues around than to take a trip to NYC, and be with us for a fun-filled Big Apple style SQL Server event that is worth every penny that you’ll spend here – FREE!  (A ride on the subway will cost you more! :-)

So, if you’re wondering who’s running the show this time around, well Pearl Knows!  It takes a team, and that team is led by NJ SQL User Group Chief, John Dempsey, and our tag team of terrific talent returns to bring us SQLSaturdayNYC 2013!   For honorable mention, the peeps behind the scenes, our core inner circle comprises of Alec A. Lazarescu, Natasha Gupta, and Deborah Takash.  They all did such a fantastic job last year, they’re back to do it again!  Don’t worry, if you want to get involved, there will be plenty opportunity for you to step forward and volunteer!  If interested, contact us at the email above.

Also, providing advisory support is SQLDiva Melissa Demsak, who recently stepped down from the NJSQL User Group, but still very much involved in our strategy.  And as she does with all SQLSaturdays, providing tactical air support all the way from Florida, is PASS Community Evangelist, Karla Landrum.

SQLSaturday is a training event for SQL Server professionals and those wanting to learn about SQL Server. This event will be held Aug 17 2013 at Microsoft Office, 1290 Avenue of the Americas, 6th Flr, New York, NY 10104.
