http://www.sqlsaturday.com/ <-- they're NOT JUST devoted to databases, but it happened to start off with that moniker once upon a time. They do have tracks on dba tasks tho, so that would be a good place for us to be affiliated with.

Anybody know this group and have some inside leads?

  • looks like they have sponsors, so if you get contact info and details, you can forward it on to the community team. We always like swag opportunities too.. May 21, 2011 at 6:24
  • @Jeff - "swag"? That means stolen goods where I come from :) May 21, 2011 at 12:22
  • @JeffAtwood PASS is one of the primary folks on this. (sqlpass.org) ~ One of the groups I'm trying to pester into talking to me (as a community member, so I'm passionate ;) )

Yes, the group is run by the Professional Association of SQL Server - http://sqlpass.org. There are dozens of us associated with it.

Every SQLSaturday is run by local volunteers. If you're looking to sponsor a particular city, go to its SQLSaturday page and go through the contact process.

Can you be more specific about what you're looking for?

Edit - also, just to be clear, SQLSaturday is indeed dedicated to databases, and to be more specific, Microsoft SQL Server.

  • ~ See what Jeff said above about general sponsorship. I've got the contact info for my local city, but I did want to see if anybody here had affiliation with other venues and wanted to get in touch with those venues as well.

  • I also did not associate the fact that I've seen you on posts here meant that you were affiliated with the site. I was just talking with someone the other day about reaching out to you and a couple other people to see how you felt about this site and maybe doing a little evangelization for us over some of the other sites where people could look for help. I realize that that's a moneymaking venture for you right now, but perhaps there's some utility in general answers here none-the-less.
