If you didn’t catch Patrick's post on SQL Saturday Wiki, I'd suggest you give it a quick read.
The SQL Saturday Wiki will be an excellent tool to help first time and repeat organizers of SQL Saturday events. We really did pour as much as we could into a one day "Lock Down / Brain dump" event at "The GodFather's" lab of evil, but I think the real value of this Wiki will be when more and more event organizers put down their lessons learned into this tool.
Not ever SQL Saturday is the same but there are enough similarities to truly help the people hosting a new event and help communicate how new ideas work out to the rest of us who have organized one or more of these events. I’m not about to try and list all the differences, but I do hope that if you see any topic/thought that we missed in the Wiki, please feel free to contact me.
Dinner the night before (as always) was a great time spent with very smart people.
Special Thanks to the following for giving up their free time: And Warren, Jack Corbett, Patrick LeBlanc, Greg Larsen, Jorge Segarra, Jessica Moss, and Sri Sridharan. And all who had to travel.Why did the Chicken cross the road? To change his tire.
I am sure it was a great "meeting of the minds" and there are a lot of beneficial details for those hosting events can get out of all of you dedicated guru's. I hope all is well with you buddy.
