You may have probably heard that SQL Saturday is more than spending a whole day at a university, a Microsoft campus or class rooms learning SQL Server. Yes, you have heard it right. It is a community celebration – celebrating about how much we care for our learning and career path with a group of like minded people – at least on the fact that we want to learn more, outside business hours. It is also a reunion with friends or present/former colleagues and a way for you to meet a potential employer, employee or colleagues.
Luckily, the next and closest SQL Saturday in Asia Pacific area is in Melbourne. It’s just less than one week from now.
