The Scene: Sparkhound HQ
(The massive boardroom at Sparkhound corporate headquarters in Baton Rouge, tucked deep inside an active volcano.)
"Birmingham!? This is LSU Tiger country!"
"I know, right, why'd we even open an office there?"
"Because of all the quality client relationships we've esta-"
"Nevermind that! Let's send our two most unpronounceably named consultants to speak, that'll show em!"
"Hey, instead, and hear me out... why don't we send our top SharePoint consultant and our top SQL Server consultant..."
"That'd be the same guys."
"Grohoske and Assaf?"
(Muttering of agreement.)
"And they'll speak on SharePoint Best Practices for SQL..."
"No no, they should speak on SQL Best Practices for SharePoint."
"No no no, this is a presentation for SQL Server admins who administer SharePoint!"
"No no no no, this is a presentation for SharePoint admins who administer SQL Servers!"

What Is SQLSaturday?
SQLSaturday is a global event series to bring Information Technology speakers and professionals together for a community-driven, community-attended free day of technical training. These free conferences, held all over the world, are open to the public and perfect for students, CIO's, database administrators, developers, IT managers, server admins and job-seekers.
Sponsors like Sparkhound help foot the bill for a minimal budget of venue, lunch and maybe some T-shirts. The focus of the event is community-based training, knowledge transfer and professional networking, and Sparkhound has been happy to sponsor SQLSaturdays regionally since their inception in 2009, including a sponsor for all SQLSaturday Baton Rouge events.
We'll see you there!
