SQL Saturday Atlanta (#392) Organizing Committee
In conjunction with AtlantaMDF (Redgate's Best User Group Tribal Award winner for the last 2 years), the SQL Saturday Atlanta Organizing Committee has put together record-breaking SQL Saturdays for the last five years. Pre-conference training is one of the best values in deep SQL Server technical training, offering nationally known speakers presenting full-day sessions for roughly 1/3 the price charged by national conferences. Pre-conference sessions are designed to appeal equally to SQL Server DBAs, Developers, and BI Professionals. #SQLSatATL
