SQL Saturday #43 was held in Redmond, Washington on June 12. It was tons of fun: great sessions, lots of interesting people to meet, and a well organized day where everything happened on time as if by magic.
SQL Saturday is a free event open to the public and is part of the Professional Association for SQL Server. You can learn more at http://sqlsaturday.com.
I had a great time and learned a lot, and THANK YOU to all the volunteers and speakers, and everyone who helped the event happen!
