SQL Saturday #411 Cambridge


WOW! What a week. In less than 7 days I have been accepted to speak at 3 SQL Saturday conferences! The schedule currently looks like this:

July – SQL Saturday Manchester
August – SQL Saturday Oslo
September – SQL Saturday Cambridge

SQL Saturday in the UK has become something of a regular occurrence. In 2015 alone have 4 (Exeter, Manchester, Cambridge and Southampton), but it all started in Cambridge with the first UK based SQL Saturday back in 2012. I missed that event but went to the following event in 2013. I had a blast! The only downside to the conference was that I didn’t spend enough time in Cambridge! I am hoping to change that this time and take in some of the sights. What I remember from last time were bikes! Bikes everywhere! I don’t have the best luck with bicycles – Ask me when you see me – I will show you the scars….

This will be the 3rd time that Mark and the team have organised SQL Saturday Cambridge and they have certainly gone big! 2 full days of training and 6 tracks on the Saturday! That is bigger than big! That is MASSIVE! In 2013 SQL Saturday Cambridge tried something different by making the even half SQL half SharePoint. I don’t use SharePoint, but like many I administer it from time-to-time. In 2013 I went to a SharePoint session and really enjoyed it. I will do the same in September.

Looking forward to seeing you there. Register now: http://www.sqlsaturday.com/411/EventHome.aspx

  1. Hi,
    We actually had five SQLSaturday events in the UK – SQLSaturday Edinburgh has been running for three years now, and the fourth is in the pipeline. I’m the lead organiser, so it was worth pointing that out!
    Kind Regards,

  2. Apologies Jen, Not sure how I forgot your event. There are so many places you can get free training for experts.
    Thanks for the reminder.
