There are 3 kinds of people who keep our user groups and sql saturdays going. They are loyal speakers, sponsors and volunteers. We took extra care to reward our speakers this time – particularly those who have been returning to us every year for the past five years. For sponsors – it is difficult to offer any ‘rewards’. Sponsors are the reason behind our free lunches, our swag, our giveaways…This post is a humble thank you to one of the best sponsors there is. Idera Software has kindly sponsored our user group lunches for 4 years now, and all our 5 sql saturdays as Gold Sponsors. Without them it would be really really hard to keep both the user group meetings as well as sql saturdays going. We are proof and testimony to their commitment to community and we greatly appreciate it. This picture is our volunteer team expressing our thanks.On behalf of all volunteers and attendees of Louisville SQL Saturday – THANK YOU IDERA, YOU ROCK!
