SQLBits coming to Nottingham

Excellent news for any SQL Server DBAs or Developers in Nottingham, SQLBits is coming to town in 2013. The East Midlands Conference Centre has been picked to host the event which is running 2nd-4th May 2013.

If you’ve been, you’ll know what to expect. If you haven’t, then you’ve a whole lot to look forward to. The traditional format is to have whole day Deep Dive sessions on the Thursday, the traditional 1 hour Conference sessions on the Friday and the Saturday. SQLBits really go out of their way to attract the cream of current SQL experts to provide these sessions so it’s a great way to pick up some excellent knowlege.

Prices are to be announced shortly. But remember, the Saturday is community day, which means it’s FREE. Yes, that’s right FREE SQL Server training from some of the best in the world is coming to Nottingham, so make sure to keep an eye on the site for when booking opens.

If anyone’s coming in from out of town then feel free to ask about local accomodation, restaurants, pubs, running or cycle routes. I’m sure we can find something for everyone

Hopefully see lots of you there.
