“You have this unusual opportunity. You have MVPs flying in from around the world to attend these events. So you have a chance to mix in with people with different experiences, significant experts that are used to going to events with 2,000 people in it. And then you’re meeting people who might not go to these conferences, and who might not have the training budgets and I like to hear their stories. So for me, it’s taking away connections and exchanging emails, and then you allow for that synchronicity to happen…the human connectivity I’ve found is the most valuable thing about this event.”
The most recent SQL Saturday Silicon Valley was on March 28, 2015 in Mountain View, California. Learn more here
