Have you ever wanted free training on using, maintaining or developing for Microsoft SQL Server, along with the opportunity to network with your peers and other SQL experts? The Professional Association for SQL Server (PASS) created SQL Saturday for exactly that reason:
PASS SQLSaturday’s are free 1-day training events for SQL Server professionals that focus on local speakers, providing a variety of high-quality technical sessions, and making it all happen through the efforts of volunteers.

SQL Saturdays are amazing regional events – hundreds of DBAs and developers shuffling between sessions, trying to decide between two great presentations during the same hour, hyped up on coffee and chattering about the session they just left. This year’s event in Pensacola is the biggest for me because I’m actually organizing it… with a lot of help. I never imagined the scale of logistics for securing venue, speakers, sponsors, attendees, coffee, breakfast, coffee, lunch, more coffee, parties, etc. I’m fortunate to have the support of prior experts along with a national team from PASS to make this event better than ever.
If you’re planning to be in the neighborhood on June 9, register at the link below and come see what “community” means in the SQL Server world. We also have an amazing pre-con planned for Friday, June 8 – two speakers will be presenting “Demystifying Database Administration Best Practices” – a full 8 hour day of training from two Microsoft Certified Masters, for just $99. Yes, I’m serious. That’s like getting the Hope Diamond in a box of Cracker Jacks.
