Before we know it, October will be upon us and it will be time for another SQL Saturday Minnesota!  If you have not yet registered for this free day of training on October 10th, please visit the site and sign up now!

Since no SQL Saturday Minnesota would be complete without a full slate of pre-cons, PASSMN and the organizers of SQL Saturday #453 are proud to announce the addition of four day long pre-cons to be held on Friday, October 9th from 9AM – 5PM. Sessions will once again be held at Dakota County Technical College in Rosemount, MN.

For the low price of only $99 you could learn how to build a world class data organization from the team at Pragmatic Works, dive into the world of Hadoop with Hortonwork’s own Bill Preachuk and his PASS Summit 2015 selected pre-con, become a SQL Server security master with Ed Leighton-Dick, or learn everything there is no know about Power BI with Mark Vaillancourt.

Any one of these sessions represents an amazing value for your training dollars!
