Why I’m Excited to be Attending SQLPass SQLRally Nordic 2011!

Delighted to announce that I’m be attending and presenting at the Professional SQL Server SQLRally Nordic 2011! The event will be taking place on 8th – 9th November, at the Aronsborg Conference Centre just outside Stockholm, in Sweden. The FaceBook page can be found here. To register for the event, click here and we’ll see you there!

The SQLRally Nordic event looks set to be an outstanding event, with speakers from SQLCat attending, such as Mark Souza, Thomas Kejser and Alexei Khalyako. Other highly respected speakers will be attending, including Itzik Ben-Gan, Kevin Kline, Chris Webb, and others that are too many to list here! If you’d like to read more, then please do head over and check out the speakers list.

There are three main ‘streams’ which are Business Intelligence, Development and DBA. We particularly liked the list of sessions, which are very well-balanced and cover a breadth of topics, as well as offering a depth in expertise. We’re glad we’re speaking and we hope to be able to listen to the presentations too. In the sphere of Business Intelligence, a range of topics are covered, including Programming Patterns with BISM Tabular by Alberto Ferrari and an Introduction to BISM by Marco Russo. There is also a session by Simon Lidberg entitled Planning and forecasting with SQL Server, Excel 2010 and SharePoint 2010 which sounds intriguing! There is also a long list of sponsors, including HP as presenting sponsor, SolidQ, and SQLBits favourites Fusion-IO, and Quest.

We think it will be an amazing two days and there are sure to be plenty of opportunities to mix with other SQL Server community members when you’re out of sessions! We’re thrilled that Jen’s speaking and honoured that she’s presenting a community session at this event. If you’re going to SQLRally Nordic, please get in touch with us at @ThinkCopperBlue and @JenStirrup on Twitter, and we’ll look forward to seeing you there!
