In 2012, these guys had the portfolios of ...

  • How SQL Saturday could be better

    I've been to a lot of SQL Saturdays. They are great events to attend - from a community standpoint, from a learning standpoint, and from a speaker growth standpoint. Who could ask for more, right? Great sessions, from passionate speakers willing to both teach and learn, fantastic networking opportunities and lunch. All for free, or at a very low ...

  • Reflections on SQL Saturday #60 - Cleveland

    Every time I attend a SQL Saturday, I leave with a rejuvenated and even further reinforced sense of community.  Cleveland (SQL Saturday #60) was by far no exception.  Allen White (blog | twitter), Erin Stellato (blog | twitter), Cory Stevenson, Brian Davis (twitter), and all others involved put on a fantastic event that endured some ...
