SQL Saturday May 2016, Jacksonville, FL

Hey, Everyone… our annual get-together of SQL professionals is happening on May 7th, at UNF, here in Jacksonville.  I will be speaking at 9 AM on breaking into the world of Azure & PowerBI, using (mostly) the skills you likely already have in SSMS.  From 9 to 5 PM it is one of your very best opportunities to learn a lot of new things, develop professionally, meet new people, enjoy a free lunch and…have a great time!
