Welcome!

What is SQLSaturday & Big Mountain Data?

SQL Saturday & Big Mountain Data Conference is all about bringing the technology community together to discuss data and the role it will play in our future, while focusing on more than just one technology. So, SQL Saturday partnered with the local Utah Hadoop Users group (www.uhug.org) and Utah Geek Events (a 501c (3) company) to create a space to learn all about DATA!

Regardless of the technology you use, we hope to demonstrate that there is a solution for every data-based problem you may encounter, big or small. Enjoy speakers from all data related technologies:

·         Attend class sessions that focus on SQL Server, noSQL, Hadoop, RDBMSs and everything in between

·         Learn how new solutions will help process large and complex amounts of data with the latest technologies as well as managing relational databases

·         Learn to build data solutions for your company’s individual needs

·         Update your knowledge to manage your company’s current data

·         Come socialize with other people just like you! Whether you are there to rub elbows with technical wizards or learn/share technology ideas specific to your industry… this is the place for you!

Simply put- the SQL Saturday & Big Mountain Data Conference will bring you up to date with familiar and new solutions to keep your business growing in the ever-changing world of technology.

We held this conference last year (2013) and had 330+ in attendance on the same day as the largest Comic Con in the state (70k+ attendees).   We fully expect this year for the conference to bring in 500+ people to the event.  We have a new location for this event at the University of Utah that we can easily hold the 500 people comfortably.  We will have top experts presenting from all over the country talking about data and data technologies. 

We separate ourselves from other SQL Saturdays out there by providing all data technologies not just SQL Server into the event.  We welcome any session talking about Data and how to work with it.  We believe the landscape is changing and it’s not just about using one tool for the job.  Sponsoring the event will put you in front of SQL people, Oracle people, Mysql people, Developers, Devops, Data scientists/Data Analysts and technologists of all skill levels.  If you have a product/solution that speaks to a wide range of technologies this is a great event for you.  

Event Overview

We have an awesome location with a great first floor area for sponsors that is setup so that foot traffic for the event goes right through the sponsor area.  Lunch is served right near the sponsor area as well giving maximum exposure.  We are currently aiming for 500+ attendees for the event.  The attendees will vary between all Data related technologies.  


Community run

Big Mountain Data Conference & SQL Saturday is run by the community for the community. In the spirit of giving, this informative conference is free to attend. All sponsor donations will be put to good use helping to build our local technology community.
