A SQLSaturday We Can Call Our Own

February 25, 2010

At last, we have just started the real work that it is involved in organizing a SQLSaturday event (see related post). Earlier today our group had a conference call for preliminary planning for the event. A lot about logistics, sponsorships, swag, funds and others were discussed.  We are now slowly seeing the fruit of this effort we all started back in October last year. SQLSaturday is now coming to the Southern California Region.

There have been plans by different groups here in SoCal for an event like this. All those came to reality by way of the SQLSaturday concept. There have been many roadblocks on the onset. The first site we talked to turned down our request. Then the next location didn’t materialize. We were finally  able to convince one and they are offering their rooms for free (no, not a Microsoft facility). It was not easy to find a location that was willing to host the event. But then that is not the hardest part.

We are now just beginning to do the actual work of putting this together. We’re seeing challenges ahead of us but we’re more interested in the positive results than in the tangible upsets. We’re making this happen.

(Note: Please stand by for more updates. We will soon work with the SQLSaturday people to setup our own website for this event)
