SQL Social No. 20 – Myths, Misconceptions and Must-See Conferences
Another very successful night for SQL Social with 29 people getting together at the Royal Melbourne Hotel. Chris Benson’s talk on Agile Data Warehouse project Myths & misconceptions sparked some lively debate and Martin Cairney’s review of PASS Summit 2013 looks to have planted the seed for a number of people to see how they can get to next year’s Summit Conference. A big thank you to our two speakers this evening, who managed to draw the crowds despite the inclement weather!
As promised, the slide deck to go with Martin’s talk is included here: PASS Summit 2013
We’ve also added a poll question about PASS – it would be interesting to see how many members there are here and how many more have signed up to find out more about PASS Summit.
And for those of you not yet signed up for PASS (the Professional Association for SQL Server), then you can do so here. And let’s not forget our local SQL Server User Group while we are at it.
It was pleasure to welcome C3 Business Solutions to the SQL Social fold this month . We are always very grateful for the support of our sponsors and look forward to lasting relationships.
