Here are the details for the next event, please note the new venue and new earlier start time!

Where: The Royal Melbourne Hotel, 629 Bourke Street Melbourne, VIC, Australia

Description: SQL Server Social brings together Database & BI professionals, industry experts and those with an appetite for learning more about data & information management, in a relaxed atmosphere to network, share ideas, impart knowledge, and have a great time whilst doing so. For more detail about the event please go to the registration link below.

Register here: http://sqlserversocial11.eventbrite.com.au

As always the event is free to attend and we will be providing food (pizza) and drinks. We will be continuing with our Ask the Experts feature and welcome John Simon to the event as our expert for the evening. He will be taking your questions on Dimensional Modeling, so come prepared .

We also have a new feature starting in October called The Presentation Jukebox. We will have a number of great AWESOME 5-30 minute presentations available on a laptop that attendees can walk up to, select a presentation from the list and have it play on a big projector screen for the whole group. Those that are interested can then watch the presentation, discuss the content and learn from one another, all while enjoying a drink and something to eat. I will also be putting together speaker/presenter bios for all the presentations/demos on the event's list, as well as creating a page on our website for them too. So if you, or someone you know, would like to contribute to the list of presentations/demos then contact me directly and we'll get you and your videos included in the list.
