SQLSaturday #51 in Nashville
August 17, 2010 Leave a comment
SQLSaturday is coming to Nashville this weekend, Saturday August 21st at 8:00am in the Student Services building of Nashville State Community College.
A Short Keynote And Great Intro Session
The day will begin with a short welcoming keynote, and by short I mean no more than 15 minutes. It’ll be just long enough to give you the logistical information you’ll need to make the most of the day.
Following the keynote, SQLRockstar, Thomas LaRock (blog, twitter), will give a presentation based on his book DBA Survivor: Become a Rock Star DBA in the cafeteria. For those who are somewhat new to the role of DBA, it’ll be a great way to start the day.
If that’s not you’re cup-o-tea, the other main sessions start at 8:30am as well.
Over 30 Great Sessions
We had over 110 session abstracts submitted for SQLSaturday #51 and it was tremendously difficult to pare it down to a manageable number. We only have time and space for 30 sessions. If we’d only gotten a session on how to flex the whole space-time continuum thing using SQL Server 2008 R2 perhaps we could have accommodated more. Maybe next time.
In the 30 sessions we were able to provide, we have a good mix of SQL Server MVPs, authors, industry experts, and local professionals who are willing to share their experiences and their knowledge at the conference. The schedule is available on the SQLSaturday #51 site.
Quest Lunch Session & Stump The Experts
As if 30 sessions weren’t enough to saturate your brain with SQL Server know-how and best practices, we have two more fun yet informative sessions. During lunch, Quest’s SQL Server Expert and Nashville’s own Kevin Kline (blog, twitter) will share with us some things he’s learned over the course of his career.
At the end of the day while we’re raffling off some fantastic door prizes, we’ll play a game we’re calling Stump The Experts. A panel of well-known industry experts have agreed to submit themselves to your questions for a time of fun and humor. Can you stump an expert? Bring your questions and find out.
