UK SQL Server (SQL Relay 2012) - 5 cities of full day content 21st May - 30th May - Overview and Deepdive - It's free too

Last October {2011} we held our the first ever "SQL Relay", this title was chosen because it was to be held on five consecutive days, with each of the UK regional SQL Server User Groups hosting an evening event in a relay fashion.

These events were a tremendous success; we all had a lot of FUN hosting the events, and had received some excellent feedback from both our regular and first time attendees to the User Group events.


Having known about the impending release of SLQ Server 2012 for a while now, the same UG Leaders and few new ones have been working tirelessly behind the scenes to organize the “SQL” to “SQL Relay” in the imaginatively titled “SQL Relay 2012” – Hey we’re DBAs not marketing Gurus!


Once again, we will be holding five days of regional events, the various user group leaders have been working very hard in the background, this time we are providing five full day events and they are FREE


These full day events will comprise of a morning overview of SQL Server 2012, which will be given by Microsoft speakers and Partners. The afternoon session will focus on some deeper technical content on the 2012 features; these will be delivered by UK SQL MVPs (Microsoft Most Valuable Professionals). With the evening events being a great way to complete the day or join us if you weren’t fortunate enough to be able to attend our morning or afternoon sessions, the content of these evening events will vary from location to location on their individual style and content – more details to follow soon.


Each of the five events will have their own registration and there are limitations on the number of attendees each event can hold, so be sure to register as early as possible to secure your place, you can attend as many or as few sessions as you wish, just indicate your preference when registering.


You may be asking “How much does It Cost to attend?” These are FREE events, due to HUGE generosity of our sponsors.
