"The world's favorite season is the spring.
All things seem possible in May."
- Edwin Way Teale
This spring, the Portland, Oregon, development community is coming together in a way never experienced before.
Using the University of Portland campus, SQL Saturday and Portland CodeCamp are combining and coordinating efforts to bring 700-800 regional technology professionals together for the opportunity to immerse themselves in seminars, presentations, group exploration, and networking -using both the 'professional conference' and the 'unconference' models. Participants will be able to engage in their preferred technology, as well as to 'sample' other options
Mark your calendar! Portland SQL Saturday and Code Camp 2010 is scheduled for May 22, 2010, at the University of Portland campus. The event is scheduled from 8:00 AM until 10:00 PM. The UP facility offers a great venue –including larger, fully equipped (and air conditioned) meeting rooms, excellent parking, access to public transportation, and easy bike commuting. Admittance to this event is free, all costs are covered by donations and sponsorships. Please register soon as seating is limited, and let friends and colleages know about the event.
Register here to attend.
Portland SQLSaturday is encouraging presentations related to interoperability of any of the SQL platforms, including T-SQL (SQL Server), PostgreSQL, MySQL, and PL-SQL. Abstracts for Platform specific sessions are also encouraged. Most sessions are one hour fifteen minutes (1:15), and a few 'deep dive' sessions will be longer (2.5 hour) in duration. The 'deep dive' sessions will be scheduled for 7:00 PM (after the snacks and refreshments.) Also, through out the day, there may be opportunities for 30 minute sessions. (Be sure to indicate your preferred session length.) Remember, in addition to folks working with a specific SQL platform, there will be a large number of developers seeking information about using one or more SQL variants to create solutions to their problems, as well as needing to work with multiple SQL platforms.

If you are in the Pacific Northwest in May, don't miss this event!
