What an exciting few weeks we’ve got to look forward to!

SQL Bits starts on Thursday this week which promises to be another fantastic event. I’m speaking on the Saturday, presenting a session on QlikView and PowerPivot. When I’m not speaking I’ve got a list of duties as long as my arm, from marshelling to room monitoring, and of course representing the Community Corner.

If you’re interested in SQL events local to you, then come and say hi to us on the Community Coener stand – a number of user group leaders in the UK will be on hand to provide any info you want regarding the SQL community, and point you towards events happening in your area.

After SQLBits, we’ve got the SQL Relay to look forward to. Every SQL Server user group in the UK is putting on an event between 3rd and 5th October 2011, with a grand finale event in London at Microsoft’s Cardinal Place on the 6th. Every event has great speakers, from MVPs to Microsoft employees, and in London we have renowned author and blogger Itzik Ben-Gan. We also have a host of fantastic prizes to give away at every event.

What makes all of this even better is that there are a number of new user groups launching during this week, including Maidenhead, Cambridge and Essex. There’s a group near you so head over to www.SQLServerFAQ.com and get registered!

Look forward to seeing you at one of the events!
