SQL Social: Australia’s Premier Data Networking Event!
When: 2018/08/08 From 5:45pm – 8:00pm
Where: The Governors Lounge, The Royal Melbourne Hotel, 629 Bourke Street Melbourne, VIC, Australia
NOTE – FOR THIS EVENT WE ARE UPSTAIRS – GO THROUGH OUR NORMAL AREA AND UP THE STAIRS
Food & Drinks will be provided.
SQL Social brings together Database & BI professionals, industry experts and those with an appetite for learning more about data & information management, in a relaxed atmosphere to network, share ideas, impart knowledge, and have a great time whilst doing so.
We will provide you with plenty of food and drinks for the evening, all thanks to our fantastic sponsors (see below).
This is not your usual SQL Server User Group event. At SQL Social our aim is to give YOU the opportunity to meet with MVPs, well-known speakers, experienced professionals & industry experts and ask them about the data-related topics that matter to you. It is an opportunity to meet new people, make new friendships and find out what is going on in the data industry in Melbourne.
As we have mentioned at previous events, we want to encourage you to take your first steps as a new speaker. As an incentive, every speaker will receive a free 1 month PluralSight subscription as a thank you. We only need a short 10 minute or so session on any SQL Server related topic – from an interesting query technique to an overview of the functionality of a component. Contact us if you’d like to have a go.
