This is a great time of year for events – as well as our own (see previous post: A Series of Fortunate Events), there are the following great community events to look forward to:
First up is SQL Bits in York – taking place from 30th September to 2nd October at York University – a three day event, with a community focus on the Saturday. The largest SQL Server conference in Europe, and must-attend event for DBAs.
Next is a a free one-day event in Manchester focusing on Windows Phone 7 from the DDD community – a day of demo-rich presentations for developers – learning, sharing and interacting in a relaxed and informal atmosphere. It takes place at the Odeon Cinema, Printworks on 7th October, from 9:00-17:00. There are still places available so book now!
Finally, another DDD event, this time in Ireland! On Saturday 9th October at the NDRC in Dublin – registration is now open.
