It’s SQLBits time again! Here’s our press release with all the details:
The SQLBits committee is pleased to announce that the next SQLBits conference, SQLBits 7, will be taking place from September 30th to October 2nd at York University. SQLBits is the largest SQL Server conference in Europe and the previous six conferences have established it as a must-attend event for DBAs, developers and BI professionals who work with Microsoft SQL Server in the UK and Europe. This SQLBits will be the biggest ever, with capacity for over 500 attendees.
This time SQLBits will be running the multi-day format that was so successful in Manchester and South Wales last year. Thursday 30th will be a training day, featuring in-depth, full-day seminars delivered by a number of well-known SQL Server professionals; Friday 1st will be a deep-dive conference day with advanced sessions delivered by the best speakers from the SQL Server community; and Saturday 2nd will be the traditional SQLBits community conference day, with a wide range of sessions covered all aspects of SQL Server at all levels of ability. There will be a charge to attend days one and two, but day three will, as usual, be completely free to ensure everyone can have the opportunity to attend. The conference will be held at the Heslington Campus of York University, a modern venue easily accessible from all parts of the country by road and rail.
Session submission is open now and we are looking for presentations on the seven main parts of the SQL Server toolset: the SQL Server relational database engine and TSQL, Integration Services, Reporting Services, Analysis Services/PowerPivot, Master Data Services, StreamInsight and Parallel Data Warehouse. As a community organisation we are keen to have as many people involved as possible, so we welcome submissions from new or inexperienced speakers. To submit a session, please go to http://sqlbits.com/information/SessionSubmission.aspx.
If you have a SQL Server-related product or service, SQLBits is a unique way of promoting it to hundreds of SQL Server professionals and decision makers. We can tailor sponsorship packages for SQLBits to your specific business needs; anyone interested in sponsoring the conference can get more details by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Just to sum up – speakers and sponsors, we need you!
