120 DBAs and Developers Attend SQL Down Under


The fourth annual SQL Down Under Code Camp was held at Charles Sturt University in Wagga Wagga, Australia this past October 10th and 11th.

Over 120 DBAs and developers throughout Australia converged to attend Australia’s largest free SQL Server event. The two-day code camp included 14 sessions presented by 12 different speakers, including many SQL Server MVPs, such as Greg Low (see photo), Rob Farley, Grant PaisleyDarren Gosbell, Adam Cogan, Peter Ward, among others. I presented two sessions at the event.

The event was organized by Greg Low (and his wife Mai). Greg is a Microsoft SQL Server Regional Director, MVP, PASS board member, and Managing Director of SolidQ Australia. The event was a PASS Community Connection event, and was also sponsored by Red Gate Software, SolidQ Australia, Microsoft, Wardy IT Solutions, and Charles Strut University.
