Phewww – time to relax

Phewww, time to relax – another SQLSaturday Denmark under the belt,  the last few weeks have been really hectic. I’ve seen Regis (B|T) more than my family, and it’s time for some quality time with my wife Lotte and the twins ;o)

I am very happy that the selection of speakers was a success, as you can see on the stats here – it’s seems that the attendees highly agreed with our selections, and that is everything to us – by all means, it is for the attendees we do this. They are the reason we keep doing this, to get the best speakers to come to Denmark and share all their knowledge with the community in Denmark.2015-09-20 20_31_43-Surveys.xlsx - Excel

A great thanks to our sponsors, without them we would not have the possibility to have this great event in Denmark.

An even greater thank you to all the volunteers, that happily spend their saturday in the spirit of the community, and again a great thank you to all the speakers, whom also use their spare time and many also at their own expenses – without them there would be no event.

So until next year, and next SQLSatDenmark or another Event, have a great time and remember to join your local SQL Server community – you might be the next local speaker.
