THE MID-ATLANTIC SQL SERVER CONFERENCE

THE SQL TRAIL

I compare my SQL experience to being on a hiking trail. On a trail you are not familiar with, it can be confusing where to go and easy to get lost. When you have a fellow hiker or companion (compañero) who knows the way, it makes it easier to know you are headed in the right direction. I think everyone needs good compañeros on their journey.

I want to help YOU on your SQL journey so I brought together some of the best compañeros I know and put together a conference so you can learn, have fun, and make new friends at the same time.

I hope you will join us.

COMPELLING REASONS TO ATTEND

There are lots of conferences and some are in some pretty cool locations.
Why choose ours? I have come up with a few reasons I hope you will find compelling.

  1. Everyone is in the same track.  This means the talk quality is much higher as the event is curated. We are capping the conference at 60 attendees.  Almost like a training class, but with the organization of a conference.
  2. You will get to know others–and that person just might have the answer to the question you haven’t been able to answer.
  3. Speakers aren’t put on a pedestal.  Sure, we will have MVPs there, but they won’t make you feel silly asking a question and want to have the conversation.
  4. The talks are actionable.  We will ask each speaker to provide a way for you to implement what you have learned as soon as you get back to your office.
  5. Our conference is introvert friendly.  Nerds welcome.
