If you live in the greater Boston area you might be interested in knowing that the New England SQL Server Users Group and Southern New England SQL Server Users Group have been quietly working for the past several weeks to create a SQL Server oriented Code Camp, using the PASS Community Connection framework. Following is the blurb we came up with to describe the event:
It's all about the data! Today's applications are increasing
data-dependent and whether you are a developer, DBA, or BI
professional, you need to know how to work a variety of data across a
range of products. This free, full-day Code Camp-style event will
feature three concurrent tracks throughout the day to satisfy any tech
professional who is interested in the latest and greatest tips and
techniques for working with SQL Server 2005 and 2008, the Microsoft BI
toolset, and all of the new .NET data access technologies, including
LINQ and the Entity Framework.
Interested in attending? Click here to join us! Register soon; space is limited and the event is starting to fill up. You can find a current list of the sessions that are planned for the day by clicking here. I'll post again once we have a full time table worked out.
Like all Code Camp style events, this one has an open call for speakers, which we'll leave open until early next week. If you're interested in presenting, please submit an abstract or two! The more speakers the better for this kind of community event. For instructions on how to do that, please see Chris Bowen's blog post announcing the Data Camp.
Please let me know if you have any questions. We're looking forward to a great event, and hope to see you there!
