[New England] SQL Saturday 71 - April 2 - Boston Area

April in the Boston area means many things. The Boston Marathon, the beginning of baseball season, and -- hopefully -- a bit of a respite from the ridiculously cold and snowy winter we've been having.

This April will mean one more thing: A full-day, free SQL Server event featuring 30 top-notch sessions.

SQL Saturday 71 will be the third full-day event in the area in as many years, and is shaping up to be the best yet. For the past several months I've been working and planning in conjunction with Mike Walsh, Grant Fritchey, and Tom LaRock. We've upgraded the venue, upgraded the food, managed to get speakers from all over the country, have a great roster of vendors for you to talk to at the event. And that is not the end. We're pushing to create even more perks to make this a truly memorable day.

So if you're in the area, or even nearby, and want to attend a top-quality training event at zero cost to you, register today.

Please note: This event is being created at zero cost to you, but that doesn't mean that it's being created at zero cost. The opposite is true; our upgraded venue is not cheap. Our budget is fairly tight and so we will be closely monitoring registrations and will end up with a waiting list. If you are not able to attend, it is your responsibility to make sure to cancel your registration as soon as possible! This will allow someone else to join us, and will keep us from squandering the funds that we've worked so hard to collect.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
