SQL Satuday #61

In addition to being known for having all your taxes, (I’m kidding: we don’t know where that money is either…) the Washington, DC region will soon be known within the ranks of cities that have hosted a SQL Saturday event. We hope that you were able to sign up in time and that you’ll still be able to make it out to the event. Here’s the skinny on the upcoming SQL Saturday #61.

Location

The event will be held at the Microsoft Technology Center at 12012 Sunset Hills Rd. Reston, VA 20190.

  • If you’re coming from out of town, you’ll want to fly into Dulles Airport, which is about a 15 minute drive away. (This is the only circumstance in which you’ll want to fly into Dulles…)
  • If you’re in the area and you have a car, the drive is simple. If you live in DC proper, you’ll take 66 West to 267 West. If you’re Virginia or Maryland, make your way to 495 and then to 267 West. Warning: there are tolls.
  • If you are Metro dependent, you’ll make your way out to Vienna on the Orange Line, and grab a bus from there. Be sure to check Metro’s ride guide for a complete trip itinerary.

What to Expect

We’ve got a full day of free SQL Server training lined up for attendees. Twenty-nine sessions spread over five tracks of study: BI, DBA, Advanced DBA, Development and Professional Development. And we’ve pulled local, national and international speakers of the highest caliber. Either check out our schedule on the SQL Saturday #61 website, or if you like to play in Apple’s sandbox, we’ve uploaded the schedule to the ConFab app, which is totally free and you can download here.

Any event held in the DC area wouldn’t be complete without a free lunch and networking opportunities (ba-dum-chinck), and you can expect plenty of that as well. Check out our networking page to get a jump start with your peers.

But all of this wouldn’t be possible without the support of our sponsors – Microsoft, Fuzion, Confio, Idera, RedGate, CapTech, Fusion-IO and many others which you can check out on our sponsor’s page.

Other Stuff to Do

If you’re coming in from out of town, or maybe you’d just like to take in some extra activities with new friends, here are some activities that you’d might enjoy that weekend:

World War II Memorial

But whatever you decide, we hope you’ll be able to join us for some SQL Server learnin’, and we look forward to seeing you soon! (Yes, I can write learnin’. DC is below the Mason-Dixon Line, therefore technically in the South, ya’ll.)
