Welcome Back to Cork!
SQL Saturday Cork is back! Last year was the first time the Irish SQL Saturday event had been run outside Dublin and we have decided in consultation with the Dublin User Group to run the event again in 2019.
On June 29th, 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.
We have two Pre Cons announced. One on SQL Server performance tuning like a Pro and one on Azure Data Factory. Pre Cons are a great chance to learn from some of the best in the business. All proceeds go towards the running of SQL Saturday Cork.
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 €44 euro a night - or €50 with a 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. If you want to stay elsewhere there is a range of options on Western Road. The three nearest hotels are
