As I said few weeks ago, this type of events are becoming extremely popular and have high demand, and if you asked why one should consider attending, I would give you few reasons:
High quality content: There is a good mix of sessions ranging from beginner to advanced for DBAs, BI developers and DB developers alike. See the event schedule and judge it by yourself (schedule page).
Professional development and networking: You can attend sessions like Andy’s Building a Professional Development Plan or meet as many of the attendees and speakers as you can. Remember, your career is not just about technology!
Landing your next job. Although, this is not officially part of this event, I see very often that attendees and speakers use this type of events to spread the word about openings at their companies. I will actually be sharing some of the openings my current company, Quaero a CSG solution, has and will encourage you to approach me if you are interested on learning more about them.
