The first box of swag for SQL Saturday #41 in Atlanta has arrived. Thank You Manning Books!!
There are more boxes of swag headed our way but this was the first to arrive. Manning has donated these 6 books to be given away. I kind of feel bad that they sent two copies of the Deep Dives books since all the proceeds go to benefit War Child International. Hopefully whoever wins these books will love them as much as I do and write a review to entice others to buy a copy.
Tomorrow the Call for Speakers is going to close so please get your sessions submitted ASAP. We are checking on room availability to see if we can fit in a few more topics and give you the most options possible. The event is near capacity. At this time there are fewer than 20 spots left. Our presenters should include a 6-pack of MVPs so if you want to secure a spot then please sign up quickly.
Next year we may need to find a larger facility to meet demand. We’ve attracted this crowd despite very little promotion outside of our own discussions and the support of Steve Jones at SQLServerCentral.com
