SQLSaturday 97 Speaker Recap

Great Content + Great Speakers = Awesome Event

All the evaluations have been tallied, its official SQLSaturday #97 was a hit! As a speaker I always like to know how well I did. As a competitor, I like to know how well I stacked up overall. SQLSaturday #97 had some heavy hitters with Conor Cunningham, Joe Celko and the Midnightdba’s in the house. I won’t release the full rankings to the public but I will share some metrics with you. If a speaker had two sessions they were not aggregated together, each session stands on its own.
