After the great PASS Summit 2012 finished, I have been counting down to the next SQL community events. Partly because I have learning withdrawals, and mostly because I miss my SQL Family!
Luckily, there are two SQL Saturdays scheduled near* my area. One of them is SQL Saturday #198 in Vancouver, Canada (16 Feb 2013) and another one is SQL Saturday #177 in Silicon Valley, US (23 Feb 2013). What I love the most about SQL Saturday is that it’s the best bang for your buck! If you look at the schedule for SQL Saturday #198 (Vancouver) here, you can immediately recognize many of the speakers are MVPs! Same goes to SQL Saturday #177 (Silicon Valley), the Partial List of Speakers shows that you will be in for a treat.
Also, if you are in the Business Analytics arena, the PASS BA Conference 2013 in Chicago is surely not to be missed. It’s a one stop shop for business analysts, data scientists, data architect and BA/BI practitioners. Not convinced yet? Twelve of these talks are going to be previewed for free on the upcoming 24 hours of PASS. So check them out!
I am very delighted to also announce that I will be speaking at all those three events with the following topics:
1. Power View for Geographical Analysis for SQL Saturday #198.
3. Analytic Cartography: Master Geospatial Reporting for SQL Saturday #177.
That’s my way of starting 2013!
Hope to see you, SQL Family, in some (or all!) of these events.
