The North Texas SQL Server User Group Board of Directors has decided to do something a little bit different for selecting Precons for our next SQLSaturday. The SQLSaturday event will be held on October 3rd with the precons on October 2nd. We have decided that since it is the community and our user group members that attend these precons that they should choose who gets selected. Our leadership is constantly looking for ways to stay rooted in the community and give back so we’re excited since we think this does exactly that. If you are paying money to attend these valuable full day training sessions shouldn’t you have some say in what the topics are? Well now you do!
We are going to open the call for Precon speakers from August 1st to August 14th. If you want to submit, you just need to send your Bio and Abstract to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll post all of the submissions HERE by August 15th and the voting will begin from there until August 21st. In order to vote, Click Here to send an email with the precon title as your subject, between August 15th and 21st. You are only allowed to vote for 1 precon since you can only be in one place at a time, so vote for the one you would want to attend. We’ll tally the votes for the top DBA session, BI session, and a wildcard. The winners will be announced by August 24th.
The precons will be held on October 2nd at the Microsoft offices in Irving. 7000 North Highway 161 Irving, Texas 75039 Building LC-1. We’ll have an early bird price of $99 and the full price will be $125.
