Things To Know About SQL Saturday Charlotte #806

Did you know that SQL Saturday Charlotte is just a few weeks away on October 20, 2018?  This will be the seventh year for SQL Saturday Charlotte.  Here are a few things we think you should know.

What’s New

Venue

After being at the same venue for the last six years, we decided to switch to a new venue this year.  We will be at the Central Piedmont Community College – Harris Campus, located at 3210 CPCC Harris Campus Dr, Charlotte, North Carolina, 28208.  This is on the opposite side of town from our previous venue and very close to the airport.

Pre-Cons

We have not one, not two, but THREE pre-cons to choose from this year!  Whether you are in the DBA or BI realm, there’s something for you!  Check them out, but register soon as seats are limited.

Technology Workshops for Kids

We are offering two workshops for kids.  A morning session for kids aged 7-10 and an afternoon session for kids aged 11-13.

Morning Session – Kids aged 7-10

Afternoon Session – Kids aged 11-13

Organizing Crew

We have had some excellent volunteers in the past.  So excellent in fact, that we decided to add them to our organizing team.  Please welcome Brad Llewelyn (B | T) who is acting as our PM.  He’s doing a great job, considering it’s akin to herding cats.

Recommended/Discounted Hotel

We have worked hard so you can save some green by finding hotel that is close to the venue and the airport.  Use this link to get a discounted rate of $119 per night.

What’s The Same

Organizing Crew

For the last seven years, our core organizing crew has been made up of the (mostly) same great #SQLFamily members.  Because of this we are able to provide a  great experience for attendees, speakers and sponsors.

Our Commitment

We work hard to select the sessions that will provide the best range and depth of learning for our attendees at the same time helping first time speakers get their start.

We hope to see you this year at SQL Saturday Charlotte on October 20, 2018.  If you haven’t registered yet, do so soon, our new venue is smaller and we will have a registration cap this year.

Moving On To New Adventures

I am pleased to announce that as of September 10, 2018, I will be part of the SQL Data Partners team!

I started my career at a consulting company in Denver, CO right out of college and loved the challenges that it brought.  After a long hiatus from consulting, I’m headed back to my professional roots and couldn’t be happier.

I will be working with Carlos Chacon (In | T), Managing Partner & Bill Lund (In | T) and I can’t wait to get started.  If you aren’t familiar with Carlos, you should be.  He has a great Podcast and runs an excellent conference called SQL Trail.

Here’s to new adventures.
