How do I register for a SQLSaturday?

To register for a SQLSaturday, you must first become a PASS member. A PASS account makes it convenient to manage your SQLSaturday user profile, update preferences, and keep track of your SQLSaturday registrations from the mySQLSaturday page.

Is lunch provided at SQLSaturday events?

It is the choice of the organizers of a SQLSaturday event if they choose to provide lunch for their event. When registering for a SQLSaturday, if lunch is offered you will have the choice to bring your own lunch (or eat lunch outside the venue), or pay for lunch via PayPal. If you choose to pay for lunch, you will be redirected to PayPal after registering. If you're unable to complete your payment during registration, you can pay later from your mySQLSaturday page.

How do I build my schedule for a SQLSaturday?

To build your schedule, go to the SQLSaturday's event website and click on Sessions -> Build Schedule. This will help you plan your day, and will also help the organizers understand which sessions are more popular. From the Build Schedule page you can view your schedule, export it to PDF or Excel, or have it e-mailed to you. You can also download iCal links.

What is a SpeedPASS?

The admission packet for a SQLSaturday is called SpeedPASS. The SpeedPASS includes your name badge, admission ticket, a lunch ticket (if you paid for lunch), and a unique raffle ticket for each of the event's sponsors.

Please print, cut and bring your SpeedPASS to each SQLSaturday event you attend.

How can I provide feedback on the events and sessions that I attend?

SQLSaturday organizers may provide you with paper forms to fill in at the event. These can be used to provide feedback on both the event and individual sessions. If you did not get chance to provide feedback during event, you can also fill out an online evaluation. These evaluations are open for one week after the event.

Note: Replace the 000 with the number of the event you attended. You can find the number on the event website.

Please evaluate each session you attend. Your feedback is extremely valuable to speakers so they can improve and deliver an even better presentation next time.

Where can I download session material?

You can download session material like slide decks and demos from each SQLSaturday's schedule page. Go to the SQLSaturday event page, hover over Sessions, and click on Schedule. Under each session, there will be a Download button.

What is a wait list and why am I on it?

Due to venue capacity, room sizes, fire regulations and so on, SQLSaturdays often must set a limit on the number of registrations for their event. Once they reach this limit, new registrants will be added to the wait list for the event. If someone cancels their registration, the first person on the wait list will be moved off the wait list and their status will be changed to attending.
