Welcome to Cork
SQL Saturday Ireland is taking a break from the very successful Dublin based event and is moving to Cork for 2018. This is done with full cooperation from the Dublin organisers. Thanks to Carmel, Bob and Ben on doing such a great job over the last few years.
SQL Saturday Cork will be hosted in the Western Gateway building of University College Cork. This building is home to the University Computer Science department and Ignition program and has state of the art facilities for presenters and attendees alike. We are planning on a four track event, so there will be plenty of excellent sessions for everyone to enjoy and learn from.
For those who don't know, Cork is located in the South of Ireland with excellent rail and airport connectivity and a motorway directly linking Dublin to Cork. If you are coming here for the day, why not consider staying for the weekend. Check out a few articles written about us.
We have blocked booked accommodation in the University Campus Accommodation located beside the venue. Rooms are excellent value at €40 euro a night or €48 if you want continental breakfast. To book these email firstname.lastname@example.org. We only have a limited number of rooms allocated on a first come first served basis.
