SQL Saturdays are events organized by local SQL user groups (mostly) that consist of a one day training event for SQL Server professionals. I’ve volunteered to speak at the SQL Saturday event in Atlanta. It’s being hosted by the good people at Atlanta.MDF. If you’re in the Atlanta region on Saturday, April 25th and want to spend a day hearing some top-notch speakers (and even me), then register for SQL Saturday at http://www.sqlsaturday.com/eventhome.aspx?eventid=17. Cost is only $10 for lunch. My presentation will be on SQL Server Consolidation and how you can apply a methodology to determine what servers in your database infrastructure can be consolidated and save both hard and soft costs.
If you aren’t local to the Atlanta region, check out the home page of SQL Saturday at http://www.sqlsaturday.com and see when an event will be held in your area. If there’s not one near you, get together with your peers and host your own SQL Saturday!
