SQL Saturday Birmingham 2019 was held at the Brock School of Business – Cooney Hall – Samford University on 27th July. The event was a huge success. We had close to 200 folks registered to the event and had a final turnaround of around 150.
If you have not attended a SQL Saturday event before or are not familiar with the concept – It is a free training event for Microsoft Data Platform professionals and those wanting to learn about SQL Server, Business Intelligence, Application Development, PowerShell and Analytics. It is a great opportunity to listen to some of the best speakers around, interact with the brightest minds and network with the awesome SQL Family.
The event went very smooth and I would like to thank all the attendees, speakers, volunteers and Samford facilities for making this edition of SQL Saturday Birmingham a runaway success.
