New England Data Camp v2.0 (SQL Saturday #34) - January 30, Waltham MA - Registration and Call for Speakers Open

Last week I very quietly announced, via Twitter, that we've officially launched the site for New England Data Camp v2.0, the second go at a full-day event jointly hosted by both the New England SQL Server Users Group and the Southern New England SQL Server Users Group. The event will take place on January 30, 2010, at Microsoft's Waltham, Massachusetts office.

If you missed last year's v1.0, you can check out the fantastic session list on my blog post for the event. We had just over 200 attendees and feedback was quite positive. This year's event promises to be even bigger and better, as we've partnered with SQL Saturday, which should smooth some of our rough edges.

We are planning to have up to 25 sessions in four or five tracks, and our public call for speakers is open and ready for your submissions. Never presented before? No problem--shake off your stage fright and give it a try. I promise, you will have a good time. The Data Camp audience is laid back and happy to learn from you, whether or not you're a seasoned presenter.

Just want to attend? That's fine, too. Our registration page is ready and waiting to reserve your spot at the event.

We're also looking for a few sponsors to help defer the cost of the event. If your company would like to increase awareness amongst the best and brightest data professionals in New England, you can do no better than to sponsor this event. Information on sponsorship plans is available on our Sponsors page.

Looking forward to seeing many SQLblog readers there! Please let me know if you have questions, concerns, comments, etc.
