Training Opportunity!

SQL Saturday's are fantastic ways to meet others in the SQL Community as well as learn more about SQL Server.  SQL Saturday follow the same format as the PASS Summit with multiple sessions per hour to chose from.  These are regional events and they happen within driving distance of Columbus GA many times per year.  Check out to see when the next meetings are.

Also are you on Twitter?  There is a huge SQL Community on Twitter.  Did you know you could tweat #sqlhelp to ask others questions?  Did you know #sqlpass is also available to ask questions regarding SQL PASS or any of the SQL Saturday events?

In my opinion one of the BEST training events is the PASS Summit.  Check out the event.  There is still time to register.  The best of the best will be holding sessions from very basic T-SQL skills to the most advanced skillsets with BI, SSRS, SSIS, etc.  The Summit is a must attend kind of event.  We have at least 5 folks from our PASS chapter that are attending.
