SQL Server and Business Intelligence

SQL Saturday #35 - Dallas

I had intended to post this weeks ago.  I guess I'm still postponing my New Year's resolution to stop procrastinating.

We're organizing our first SQL Saturday event in Dallas on May 22nd, hoping to make it an annual event.  It will be held at the Region 10 Education Center in Richardson, and we currently have 4 tracks slated:  Development, Administration, Business Intelligence and Beginner.  I'm particularly excited about the Beginner track since we so rarely find those at the big conferences.  This could be a valuable set of sessions, especially for those that are moving from one area of focus to another.  If you live in or around the Dallas area and have been hoping to find one of these events near you, here's your chance!  The event, like all SQL Saturdays, is free.  We are collecting a fee of $10 for lunch onsite.  Click here to register.  Registration is limited, so don'

Our call for speakers is open and will be open until mid-February.  We've already received some great abstracts from well-known speakers, and I hoping we'll see even more.  Even if you've never presented before and want to get your feet wet, this is a great opportunity.  Everyone has something interesting to share with their peers and this is a good opportunity to do so.

Seems the link is broken for both registration and call for speakers ("Registration has closed for this event."). That site is way weird - it seems everything is stored in session variables; i.e. you cannot directly link to registration for one event. I also had to use IE; Firefox showed nothing.

Anyway, to register/etc, I think you can use IE and find a way to the "Schedule" link in the top menu. After a few clicks around the site, eventually I got the logo to show up. Once I got the logo to show up, I could then start to use the site.

Wow, thanks for pointing this out, Scott!  I'll see if I can fix those tonight.  In the meantime, another way to get to the site is through our local user group site,, or the direct URL -
