I received word earlier today that I’ll be presenting at the upcoming SQL Saturday event in Tampa, Florida on January 24. I got to present at one of the first SQL Saturday events last year in Jacksonville and it was quite a well run event. A good lineup of content along with a significant attendee turnout made for a highly successful event, and I hope the Tampa event will match the success of the previous experience.
As an aside, I’m hoping to use what I learn attending and presenting these two conferences to put together a similar event. I’ve had some talks with Andy Warren, one of the founders of SQL Saturday, and he’s very excited about the growth of this community event. I pinged my local SQL Server gang (North Texas SQL Server User Group) about the possibility of bringing SQL Saturday to Dallas, and I got a lot of positive responses. So if you’re in the Dallas area and would like to be a part of an upcoming SQL Saturday event, please let me know.
