SQL Saturday #117 Pre-Con with William E. Pearson III - Practical Self-Service BI with PowerPivot for Excel!
Friday, June 1, 2012 from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM (EDT)
Want to get some great SQL training but can't afford to go to SQL Pass, SQL Connections, or some other big SQL Server conference? Would you like to extend your SQL Saturday experience with a full-day of SQL Server knowledge from SQL Server MVP and William E. Pearson III? What if I told you that you could get this training for less than the cost of parking at the airport for one of those fancy conferences, would you be interested?
If you answered yes to any of the question above the SQL Saturday #117Pre-Conference is where you want to be. For the low cost of only $99 you will not only get training from SQL MVP William E. Pearson III, but we are also going to throw in your lunch for free. This is the same pre-conference material that you would pay $500 plus the cost of the conference to get at something like SQL Pass or SQL Connections. And you only need to travel to Columbus, Ohio, located right in the center of Ohio.
We have limited tickets for this event so be sure to get your tickets while they last!!
