SQL Saturday Raleigh 2017 is official. The event will be Saturday, March 11th at William Peace University in Raleigh, North Carolina. SQL Saturdays are free, one-day training events for database administrators, database developers, and anybody in the broader data platform space. Attendance is free, and there is an optional $15 charge for lunch. Our call for speakers is open through Tuesday, January 10th, so sign up!
For this year’s SQL Saturday, I hope to get a fairly broad range of topics, covering plenty of core SQL Server administration and development topics, but also topics like Hadoop and R, bringing in some groups of people who might not normally think of going to a SQL Saturday.
