Welcome to SQLSaturday #186
Saturday, 8th June 2013
Think of a SQLSaturday as a one day free conference. We bring in a lot of volunteer speakers, we have lunch on site, and everybody comes away having learnt something new with the opportunity to network with peers and like minded IT professionals.
We work hard to make our event a great experience for everyone, including our sponsors that enable us to cover the costs as the event is free to attendees.
The range of topics for the event covers all aspects of working with SQL Server; administration, development, business intelligence, analytics and much more.
We've got speakers lined up from all over New Zealand and Australia, including MVPs, MCITPs and potentially even aa Microsoft Certified Master, the highest Microsoft qualification a person can obtain.
We've held 3 previous SQL Saturday's in New Zealand (2 in Auckland) and all were increidbly well received and attended. We're expecting 150+ attendees at SQLSaturday #186.
This year, we're holding the SQL Saturday at Snow Planet, New Zealand's only indoor ski venue. In addition to the conferance facailities, attendees will have the opportunity to "hit the slopes" after the event.
