SQLSaturday #308 Houston – Selected Sessions Final

Thanks to everyone who submitted sessions for SQLSaturday #308 in Houston on May 10th. I think this was definitely the most difficult selection process of the 3 SQLSaturdays that we have held. Lots of great sessions were submitted from a really large pool of speakers. For those who were not selected – PLEASE do not take this personally! It primarily came down to a balance of session topics spread across as many speakers as possible – we have 48 speakers for 60 sessions.

If you only submitted one session and we had multiple similar sessions to choose from then if your abstract didn’t really stand out in that category, it may not have been selected. If you only submitted one session on a topic that no one else submitted and we did not select it, it may be because we thought the topic was too narrow or the abstract didn’t clearly express what you planned to present. If you think it may be your abstract keeping you from being selected, check out any of several posts that Brent Ozar has done over the years on Abstract writing for tips to improve. And, in the future I would recommend submitting at least 2 topics for program committees to choose from to improve your chances!

So, with that all said, here are the selected sessions alphabetized by speaker last name.
