Last year one of the most popular sessions for SQL Saturday were the lightning talks. No need to register in advance, just register at the event for a FIVE minute slot. one hour and maybe ten speakers.

The rules are simple:

– Topic can be ANYTHING loosely related to SQL Server
– Strict five minute time, buzzer provided for cut off

We will have some mystery prizes. Last year prize categories were:

  • Best “New” speaker (no MVPs and product team folk)
  • Most entertaining
  • Best speaker

This years promised to be a mixture of short nuggets form industry experts with some light hearted content thrown in.

If you missed Matt Massons hilarious “How to use SSIS and slipstream to manage facebook” he is presenting a sequel “How to use SSIS to manage online dating”

@CarmelGunn penned “Paradise Lost? Advise found” with the catch tag of “When your data fits on a USB stick, more hardware’s unlikely to do the trick” http://blogs.prodata.ie/post/Paradise-Lost-Advise-Found.aspx
