Inaugural Leicester SQL Server User Group, being held at Leicester YMCA, 7 East Street, Leicester, LE1 6EY on Wednesday June 20th, 6:30pm to 9pm.
Register at www.SSUGLeicester.org.uk
For our first meeting, we have a packed schedule, featuring three distinguished speakers, namely the inimitable Mark Broadbent (blog | twitter ), as well as Gavin Payne (blog | twitter), and Christan Bolton (twitter) of coeo.com.
We will have to make a prompt start at 18:30, in order to accomodate all of this great SQL Server content, wolf down a couple of samosas at the break, and still catch the last bus home.
I recently returned from SQLBits X in London bearing two of those rugby shirts they give to the speakers, and I will be raffling one of these off during the interval. Entry is automatic providing you show up on the night - much easier than spending hours, if not days, preparing a session for the SQLBits conference itself in order to obtain this season's must-have fashion accessory.
The revised programme is as follows:
18:15 - Arrivals, Registration, Introduction
18:30 - Mark Broadbent with "Enter the Dragon: SQL2012 on Server Core"
19:15 - Break, Samosas, Raffle draw
19:30 - Gavin Payne on Virtualisation for the SQL Server Professional
20:15 - Christian Bolton on Parallelism
