SQL Saturday #596 – Denver BI Edition
The organizer thought the best space was a university. They started looking the summer before the event (which was in late February). They used their contact to get a meeting with one of the deans and a few people on his team. They organizer was ready with information about the planned event.
It took a few more meets to set up an event with 2 conference rooms that the dean managed and could make available on a Saturday for free.
This fit in with their goal of a small event aimed at college students and working professionals at a low cost.
