On August 14, 2010 at Louisiana State University SQL Saturday #28 will be held.  If you have yet to attend a SQL Saturday you should try to make this event.  Now I know what you are thinking, Baton Rouge in August?  Well, before you make a quick decision about not attending take a look at everything that will take place.

Breakfast Tracks - SQL and Beignets (All Novice or Beginning Level)

At 7:30 AM we will have three sessions.  All three sessions will be introduction, novice or 100 level.  If you are new to SQL Server or just getting started or trying to get started then these sessions are for you.  You can learn from the best in the industry two SQL Server MVPs and a Business Intelligence Expert.  Here are the three sessions:

Presenter Session Title
Steve Jones Basic SQL Server
Andy Leonard Build Your First SSIS Package
Barry Ralston Breakfast Basics, SSAS Cube Creation

So if you want to learn about SQL Server, SSIS or SSAS join us for some coffee or juice, beignets and three great presentations.

Keynote by Steve Jones

Do you want a chance to meet one of the co-founders of SQLServerCentral.com and SQL Saturday? Then here is your chance.  Join us for a great keynote by Steve Jones, MVP (Steve’s talks are always entertaining and this one shouldn’t be any different). 

Four SQL Tracks and Three .Net Tracks

We have worked hard on finding some of the brightest SQL and .Net speakers.  Fortunately for us, it wasn’t very difficult.  We have over 80 sessions submitted.  Now that we have closed the call for speakers we will be spending time putting together a great schedule.  With so many sessions we have decided to have a minimum of seven tracks with six sessions each.  That will give us at least 56 sessions plus the 3 breakfast beginner sessions.  We are considering adding two more tracks, so stay tuned to the SQL Saturday site for updates.

Host of Microsoft MVPs

Finally, we have commitments from 13 Microsoft MVPs for this event.  Not taking anything from our non-MVP speakers because all of our speakers are extraordinary, but we are excited to have so many MVPs at this SQL Saturday.  Each track (SQL and .Net) will include MVP speakers. 

Microsoft .NET Framework from Scratch

Come see this session that Keith Elder did in a pre-TechEd conference.  The cost of this session was $400-$500. Space is limited so please sign up ASAP.  This session is a part of our 2010 Baton Rouge .NET and SQL Saturday. You will need to register in two places if you want to attend this session, SQL Saturday #28  and Event Brite SQL Saturday Baton Rouge.

This seminar is for anyone who is starting at ground zero with .NET and wants a deep dive into the platform starting from scratch. It is designed for developers experienced in at least one other language, and starts with the basics of . NET and covers Microsoft Visual Studio, writing code in C#, and how to build applications in various technologies of the platform such as Windows, Web, Microsoft Silverlight, and Windows Mobile.

So if you have the time, come out and network with some of the smartest SQL Server and .Net professionals in the country.  I have had the opportunity to attend sessions from most of our speakers and I have to say you will definitely learn something if you attend. 

Talk to you soon,
