We technically released it on Monday but I didn’t want to blog about it for a couple days since we were waiting for a few speaker to confirm on their sessions. But now that I’ve heard from nearly everyone it’s time to spread the word.
After looking at the speakers that submitted sessions and the number of people that have already registered. An amazing 213 people so far! We opted to go with 5-tracks and 6-sessions per track. This allowed us to make the most of the out of town speakers and also accept all of the local speakers that wanted to stand up and share.
You can see the full schedule on the SQL Saturday site. I wanted to mention each of our confirmed speakers. If you have a chance take get to know them – they are offering their time to get together and help our community know more about SQL Server.
