Back to the main event. Right now for SQL Saturday we are looking for:
A major misconception about SQL Saturday Jacksonville is that because Pragmatic Works has it’s home office in Jacksonville that we don’t need speakers. Well that is far from true. We would love you to be a speaker at our event.
SQL Saturday’s are a great way to get exposure to your business. Last year we had 450 attendees and have continued to grow in numbers year over year. This is a great way to get in person contacts with hundreds of SQL Server professionals.
Why: It is a great opportunity to learn from Microsoft MVPs, SQL Server authors, and professionals who have been through and can relate to the obstacles you have day to day. This one day training event is unlike any other providing free food, training and networking.
When: Saturday, Apr 28 2012.
