I'm excited to be back in the gorgeous city of Colorado Springs for SQLSaturday #700! The date is set: March 24, 2018. As in the past three years, the organizers have partnered with Colorado Technical University to bring you a great SQLSaturday of learning and community. Lots of great sessions and speakers!
Logistically, please be aware that they will not be serving lunch this year. Instead, there's a 90-minute lunch break to network and get food from any of the nearby restaurants, some local food trucks coming to CTU, or to brown bag your own lunch from home. In addition, there are some great pre-conference sessions, including my own:
- Mar 23, 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM
