Once you arrive on campus we'll be located in building "J", which is on the south end of the campus. J building is adjacent to the fire department training building. We will try to have signs posted to make sure you find us.

    • Please visit the check-in desk when you arrive. You'll get a bag with some event related materials, a name badge, and most importantly - your lunch ticket! If for some reason we don't have a ticket for you but you have paid, we'll work it out while you're in the first session

    One last minute change to the schedule, due to some great collaboration from the local Oracle User Group Joe Celko will be coming to Orlando for SQLSaturday #21. He'll be doing an information discussion about lunch that discusses his career, ANSI SQL, and more, and then he'll be doing a full hour session at the end of the day. One more reason to attend!
