Speaking at SQL Server Days 2014 in Belgium

I’m Speaking at SQL Server Days 2014 in Belgium

Back in the spring I met two Belgian guys when I spoke at SQL Saturday Exeter, those guys were Pieter Vanhove ( b | t ) and Steve Verschaeve ( b | t ) and they told me about a conference that they are involved in: SQL Server Days

This annual conference is one of the larger SQL Server conferences in Europe, with over 300 attendees and has a whole host of world class speakers providing full day pre-con sessions and the standard 60 minute sessions.

Over a beer (or three) Pieter and Steve convinced me that this conference is one of the “must attend” conferences, so when their call for speakers was announced I submitted a couple of sessions.

A few weeks ago, the first (pre-con) speakers were announced. I saw the names and realised that Pieter and Steve meant business – the pre-con line-up is extremely good. Some of the biggest names in the SQL Server community are in attendance and there are subjects to account for anyone’s taste.

After seeing the pre-con speaker names I wasn’t going to hold my breath on being chosen to speak. However, last night I got the confirmation that my session “Consolidation – Resistence is Futile” has made the list!

I look forward to visiting Belgium for the first time (I’ve driven through Belgium often enough, but never stopped) and have been promised that Belgian beer is the best in the world…… we’ll see……

So if you are thinking of attending, make sure to book soon, The early bird offer (expires 15.07) will give you a discount and the site says that the first 100 registrations are eligible for a buy two get one free offer.

So don’t wait, get registered now and I’ll see you there at the end of September.
