Since the first SQLBits was such a success, we’re doing it again – this time in Birmingham (that’s the UK one, obviously, not the one in America) on the 1st of March 2008 at the Lakeside Conference Centre. Put the date in your diary! For more information see: http://www.sqlbits.com/
If you came to the last one then you can expect the same thing again only bigger and better, and of course it remains free to attend. If you didn’t come to the last one and you’re wondering whether to believe the hype, then here are some comments plucked from the blogosphere that will hopefully sway you:
Registrations aren’t open yet but at this point we’re looking for sponsors (http://www.sqlbits.com/information/Sponsorship.aspx) and speakers (http://www.sqlbits.com/information/SessionSubmission.aspx). If you’ve got a SQL Server-related product or service to promote (and that includes you, Microsoft BI vendors and consultancies) then there will be no better opportunity to meet potential customers. And if you’re dying to impart your hard-won technical knowledge to your peers and want to take your first steps on the conference circuit, again SQLBits is the place to be; in particular for the BI track I’d be happy to hear from anyone new willing to speak about SSAS, SSRS, SSIS, PerformancePoint or MDM.
