Announcing SQL Summer Camp

A new way to train in SQL Server.SQLSummerCamp_logo1


I had an idea a few years back about a training event unlike any other. One where you could bring family, all have fun, and yet still learn about SQL Server from top people in the industry. After years of working things out, that idea has come to be.

That idea is now SQL Summer Camp.

SQL Summer Camp is a combination of making new friends, having fun and learning new things about SQL Server. This is not a rigorous, intensive boot camp style of training, nor will it be like a typical conference where you just sit and listen to speakers talk all day.

Instead, SQL Summer Camp will have a combination of fun activities, training, and social events related to SQL Server. We understand we will have people of various technical levels joining us, so we will have training and activities for everyone. Not only that, we are going to have it in Nova Scotia, Canada high on the wish list of locations to visit of many people.

You can look forward to things like presentations and training from some of the best SQL people in the world, camper-led panels, fun competitions and activities like the SQL Server Sea Shanty Sing Off and SQL Horror Stories by the nightly camp fire.

The goal is to create a near all-inclusive event that was educational and also promoted the social aspects of the SQL Server community. SQL Summer Camp provides a week of training, meals, events and activities centered on SQL Server and recharging your own batteries.

We know being alone for a week of training in a great location is sometimes awkward for friends and family. They usually want to go to the location as well, but don’t want to take the training, or maybe even aren’t all that geeky about SQL Server. Don’t worry, we have that covered. We offer a program for your friends and family, we call them Stowaways, and they have an entire week of events and activities they can participate in while you are in training. They also get to join you and participate in our larger group events like the SQL Server Schooner Sunset Sailing!


There is so much to be experienced at SQL Summer Camp it can’t be conveyed in just these few paragraphs.
