SQL Saturday NYC Update #2

Just over 2 weeks now since SQL Saturday NYC went live and planning is in full force.  An update on numbers is now 65 people are registered to attend and if you haven’t already make sure you get your spot.  We just got our newest sponsor and first Silver level and a big thank you to Pragmatic Works.  Also new sessions keep coming in almost every day and we now have 89 session submitted.   One big update is on the PreCons and we have decided to do 2 of them on Friday May 29th 2015, so be sure to send your requests, sqlsaturday380@sqlsaturday.com,  for a PreCon before 12/31/2014 so we can start confirming.

A tip to anyone else planning SQL Saturday’s OneDrive is a great way to share documents with your Committee.

SQL Saturday NYC Update 1

It has been one week now since SQL Saturday NYC was announced and the planning committee and myself are very pleased.  We have 50 people registered to attend as of noon today and we have our first Gold Sponsor, Rehfeld and our first Bronze level sponsor with Ntirety.  The speaker community has also come out with great support and submitted 71 sessions, and I encourage to keep them coming.  If anyone is interested in doing a PreCon please let myself, AnotherSQLGeek@gmail.com or Robert Pearl, PearlKnows@yahoo.com know as we are also evaluating doing two possible precons.

One lesson learned right away was to setup a couple folders and rules in my email as I have been flooded with 100’s of emails and if I haven’t responded to anyone yet I certainly will as I have been a little busy this past week.   On top of SQL Saturday being announced my wife and I welcomed our newest edition James A Phillips Jr. on Wednesday and everyone is very healthy.
