I’m happy to announce that on Saturday April 21, 2012, the New Jersey SQL Server user group will be hosting a “SQL Azure Saturday” event! This will be a FREE full-day event on SQL Azure & data in the cloud related topics. The event is something that I have been working with the group’s organizer, Melissa Demsak, to produce.
