The New England SQL Server Users Group and Southern New England SQL Server Users Group have been quietly working for the past several weeks to create a SQL Server oriented Code Camp, using the PASS Community Connection framework. Following is the blurb we came up with to describe the event:
It's all about the data! Today's applications are increasing data-dependent and whether you are a developer, DBA, or BI professional, you need to know how to work a variety of data across a range of products. This free, full-day Code Camp-style event will feature three concurrent tracks throughout the day to satisfy any tech professional who is interested in the latest and greatest tips and techniques for working with SQL Server 2005 and 2008, the Microsoft BI toolset, and all of the new .NET data access technologies, including LINQ and the Entity Framework.
Interested in attending? Click here to join us! Register soon; space is limited and the event is starting to fill up. You can find a current list of the sessions that are planned for the day by clicking here. I'll post again once we have a full time table worked out.
For sponsorship or speaking opportunities, please see Chris Bowen's blog post announcing the Data Camp.
This event is being run by Adam Machanic. Adam is a Boston-based independent database consultant, writer, and speaker, shares his experiences with programming, performance tuning, and optimizing SQL Server 2000, 2005, and 2008, in conjunction with related technologies such as .NET.
Please let me know if you have any questions. We're looking forward to a great event, I will be there and I hope to see you there!
