Technical Architect in Advania | Microsoft Data Platform MVP | SQLSaturday Organizer | SQL Server and Biml Speaker




This year we have 25 sessions across 5 parallel tracks, covering topics like Database Administration, Database Development, Azure and Cloud Services, Business Intelligence, Business Analytics and Professional Development. We’ve done our best to provide a good mix of topics and skill levels and we hope you will find something of interest throughout the day.

Take a look at the schedule, and register today 🙂

What is SQLSaturday Oslo?

SQLSaturday Oslo is a free 1-day training event for Microsoft Data Platform, Business Intelligence and SQL Server professionals, providing a variety of high-quality technical sessions. This is a great opportunity to network and learn from MVPs (Microsoft Most Valuable Professionals), local and international speakers – you can even win prizes from our sponsors at the end-of-day raffles! The event is completely free, but we charge a small fee of NOK 100 for lunch and snacks. You are of course welcome to bring your own lunch.

Pre-Conference Workshops

If a day of free training isn’t enough for you, we also offer four great pre-conference workshops this year. For as little as 1600 NOK (that’s less than a third of what you would usually pay for high-quality training like this) you can spend a full day learning from these international experts and MVPs!

Grant Fritchey presents Query Tuning with Execution Plans (intermediate, full day)

Dejan Sarka presents Data Mining Algorithms in SSAS, Excel, R and Azure ML (expert, full day)

Andre Kamman presents PowerShell for DBAs (advanced, half day)

Mladen Prajdic presents Security Best Practices for SQL Server and Application Developers (advanced, half day)

Want to help?

We are looking for volunteers! Don’t worry, the SQLSaturday team will be doing all the heavy lifting, but we’re looking for room monitors for all our sessions. Room monitors show up 5-10 minutes before the sessions start to make sure the room is tidy, hand out evaluation forms, help the speakers keep track of how much time is left, and collect evaluation forms after the session. It’s also a great opportunity to get to know the speakers better if you have any questions for them! If you want to volunteer, go to our Volunteer portal, log in, and click Apply for the session you want to monitor.


Spread the word!

We hope that you can help us spread the word about this great day of free training. Forward this to your friends and coworkers, print the schedule and stick it to the coffee machine in your office, tweet, post on LinkedIn or Facebook – or just make one of those old-fashioned phone calls 🙂 You can follow us on Twitter @SQLSatOslo and join the discussion by using the hashtag #SQLSatOslo.

See you in September!

The SQLSaturday Oslo team
