There is a popular saying and it has been included in many songs, that “the best things in life are free”. And really, that is one of the things I like the most about the SQL Server community. There are always opportunities to take advantage of free training. That being said, there are some upcoming events that I am personally looking forward to:
- SQL Saturday in Chicago – March 5, 2016 (http://www.sqlsaturday.com/484/eventhome.aspx). There seems to be a nice variety of sessions and many vendors will be attending. I mention the vendors because sometimes a small purchase of a product can save you hours of time.
- SQL PASS BA Webinar – Thursday, February 25, 2016 (http://passbaconference.com/2016/Learn/WebinarMarathon.aspx). There are only a few sessions that will be presented, but they should provide a taste of what will be presented at the PASS Business Analytics Conference (http://passbaconference.com/2016/Home.aspx).
