Speaking at SQL Saturday #51 in Nashville

image Wow, having been an attendee at SQL Saturday #21 in October of last year (just 10 months ago) I can’t believe we’re already up to #51.  That means we’re averaging 3 a month and there’s no stopping in site; in fact Next year’s schedule is already starting to fill in.  If you’re wondering where the closest one to you is just have a look at the Map.

TailgatingI’ll be speaking at SQL Saturday #51 about PowerShell just before Allen White and our sessions cover completely different content so please come to both!  As soon as I’m done with my session I’m headed straight out the door and to the “World’s Fastest Half Mile”.  That’s right, I’m taking a 230 mile detour on my way to the night race.  There is going to be a freaking amazing amount of great speakers at this event and if you live within a 6 hour drive of Music City I Highly recommend you don’t miss one of the best lineups since SQL Saturday#33 in Charlotte

I always try to work in a new script into each session but I’m actually speaking 3 times in the next week so I have no idea how I’m going to come up with 3 new things so fast but I’ll try.

Here are some vital stats on the event and I hope to you’ll come heckle me in Nashville:
SQLSaturday #51 will be held on August 21st, 2010, at Nashville State Community College (120 White Bridge Road, Nashville, Tennessee, 37209). Event check-in will be at 7:30 with the sessions beginning at 8:00. Sessions will wrap up between 5:00 and 5:30.
