October 8, 2011: SQLSaturday Oregon

For the month of October, we are NOT meeting on the normal second Wednesday -BUT instead, Oregon SQL is hosting SQLSaturday Oregon on October 8, 2011, at the Portland Community College CLIMB Center. http://sqlsaturday.com/92/eventhome.aspx

SQLSaturday is a FREE daylong event offering demonstrations, training, networking, discussions, and great opportunities to pick up a few new professional tips and tricks.

There will be sessions for DBAs, developers working with SQL, those working with Business Intelligence and reporting, and sessions that defy categorization. There will over 40 sessions by some of the top SQL Server professionals in the nation -including a few from the Portland area. Heck, we even have Rob Farley coming in from Australia, Neil Hamby coming from Britain, Hugo Kornelis coming from metropolitan Netherlands, and of course there will be a few Canadians -and even Buck Woody. It’s going to be an international event!

Plan now to come and hear Brad McGeHee, Marc Beacom, Allen White, Carlos Bossy, Peter Myers, Tim Ford, and a lot of other folks that you will no doubt enjoy.

The session schedule is posted here, and you can register here. There is no cost for the day -and it includes refreshments and lunch. (Your advance registration helps us to plan refreshment/lunch counts.) You’re welcome to hang out with many of the speakers during the ‘After-Event’ Saturday evening.
