It’s time for a new adventure! While there have been over 200 SQL Saturdays held all over the world, this will be the first one held in North Dakota. I’m thrilled to be part of the team bringing this great event to a new location and a new group of SQL Server professionals! SQL Saturday #175 Fargo will be held on Saturday, April 27, 2013.

What’s a SQL Saturday? It’s a free, one-day training event all about SQL Server. It is for the community and by the community – all the organizers, speakers, and helpers are volunteers. Sessions will be held for developers and DBAs, analysts and programmers; from novice users to experts in the field. Everyone that attends is sure to learn something new!

The event is being held at Microsoft Executive Briefing Center Fargo, 4550 42nd Street South, Fargo, ND 58104, on Saturday, April 27, 2013. Attendance is free! Please register, and do us a favor: invite someone you know to come along with you! We want to see SQL Server professionals in the area connect not just on this one day, but long-term. The more people that attend, the more networking there will be. We’d love to see a user group develop out of this weekend, too!

Do you want to share your SQL knowledge with others? We’re looking for speakers, too! Any SQL related topic is welcome. The call for speakers closes Tuesday, February 26, 2013, so hurry!

I look forward to seeing you in Fargo!
