The schedule has been posted for the upcoming SQL Saturday event in Minnesota that will take place on Friday, November 11.  There were a lot of sessions submitted and it is always tough to pick the final lineup of topics and I think we have a great mix of topics that will be of interest to everyone from business intelligence, database administration, SQL development, and even a professional track.sql sat 99 logo

Online Schedule –> MN SQL Saturday #99 Schedule (includes speakers names and links to sessions descriptions)

The great thing about this is that everyone that submitted a session is getting a chance to speak (at least I don’t think anyone was left out). So what do you need to do now that the stage is set? REGISTER!

Yes, now that we have the location set, Grace Church in Eden Prairie (very large facility and will be a great place for the event), the schedule is set, and our sponsors are lined up, now we need everyone to complete the registration process.

Register here –> MN SQL Saturday #99 Registration

We already have over 200 people registered and we have the max capacity set at 350, so if you want to secure your spot for the event register now.  Once the spots are filled a waiting list will be started, but we can’t guarantee you a spot, so make sure you get in before we reach our cutoff.

P.S. There will be a continental breakfast provided as well and stay tuned for more updates and news to follow as the event date gets closer.  It is going to be a great one! (#99)
