If you or someone you love lives in the Baton Rouge area, is a software developer, database administrator, SharePoint developer, etc, and is either looking for free training or looking to spend a day with like-minded people, then please direct them to LSU's campus for the annual SQL Saturday in Baton Rouge. It's TODAY, August 4th.
Yeah, sorry it's kind of last minute, but I figured you'd forget if I blogged about it any earlier.
SQL Saturday is a great event for developers. First off, it's FREE. Second, it's put on by people who work in the Baton Rouge area. Third, it's going to be attended by people who aren't forced to be there but WANT to be there.
Let's be honest, it's like Comic-Con for developers.
I love that the people in Baton Rouge do so much to help grow everyone's skills. Thank you to all the sponsors who helped to make this event possible, thanks to the people putting on the event, and thanks to all the volunteers who are giving their time. I went to this event last year and had a great time, learned a lot, and met a lot of really cool people. We had people from Lafayette and New Orleans show up, and even a few people from Texas and Mississippi. Everyone is welcome!
