SQL Saturday #50 – Call for Speakers

The Call for Speakers is now open for SQL Saturday #50, the East Iowa SQL Saturday event! This is our second time hosting a SQL Saturday, and we’re hoping to build upon the success of last year’s event. We’re looking for a wide variety of topics on SQL Server and related technologies (i.e. PowerShell, R2, LINQ, etc.). We also have had several requests for intro-level topics, such as beginning disaster recovery and basic performance tuning. If you’re even remotely thinking about speaking, please submit an abstract!

Last year we had about 100 folks attend from surrounding areas. This year, we’re shooting for 125 attendees, which would max out our facility’s capacity. Not sure how far away Iowa City is? It may be closer than you think. Allow me to rehash my travel times from last year’s plea for speakers:

  • Chicago – 3.5 hours
  • Omaha – 3.5 hours
  • Milwaukee – 4 hours
  • Kansas City – 4.5 hours
  • Minneapolis – 5 hours
  • St. Louis – 5 hours
  • Indianapolis – 6 hours

The event will be held on September 18th at the University of Iowa in Iowa City. You can find more information, including an abstract submission form, on our event website at http://sqlsaturday.com/50/eventhome.aspx.

Oh, and if you do make it to our SQL Saturday event, please make sure to stop me and say “hi!” :)
