Where can you find deep dish pizza, questionable politics, amazing architecture and a great SQL Saturday all in one stop? Sweet Home Chicago! The organizing committee in the windy city has been hard at work, and SQL Saturday #211: Chicago 2013 is open for registration.
This year the event will be taking place on Saturday April 13, 2013. DeVry University’s Addison Campus is once again graciously allowing us to use their awesome facility. We’re all looking forward to a great day of free SQL Server training, networking, and #SQLFamily in Chicagoland. Please join us!
As in past years, the event itself is free, but there is a $10.00 charge to cover the cost of lunch. This year’s meal offering has yet to be determined, but Portillo’s was a hit last year and leaves us with big shoes to fill!
The call for speakers is open! Submit an abstract or two! Have you always wanted to present at a SQL Saturday but have been waiting for a sign to do so? Consider this your sign.
B.A. Lovers Unite!
If your first thought was B. A. Baracus of the A-Team, you’re not alone. I’m talking about a different B.A., but I’m sure Mr. T. pities the fool that doesn’t come to his hometown of Chicago a few days early and attend the first-ever PASS Business Analytics Conference! It’s taking place April 10-12 2013, immediately before our SQL Saturday.
SQL in the land of beer and cheese
The weekend before Chicago’s SQL Saturday our neighbors to the North will be hosting one of their own. Consider heading to Madison, WI on Saturday April 6 for SQL Saturday #206. I had a blast there last year and am looking forward to it again!
As you can see, we have plenty going on in the upper midwest April 6-13. Please consider joining us for one or more of these great opportunities to get your learn on. I hope to see you there!
