PASS SQLSaturday’s are free 1-day training events for SQL Server professionals that focus on local speakers, providing a variety of high-quality technical sessions, and making it all happen through the efforts of volunteers. Whether you're attending a SQLSaturday or thinking about hosting your own, we think you'll find it's a great way to spend a Saturday – or any day. I've only listed a few that are in driving distance; many more are listed at the "SQL Saturday" home page.

For those of you looking to 2015:
SQL Saturday Austin - January 31, 2015 - You may consider this when you think back to the weather during our last January.
Registration is not available yet, but Chicago will be hosting a SQL Saturday on March 28th, 2015 at Allstate Insurance, in Northbrook, IL. A few of us from Afni attended the SQL Saturday in Chicago last year, and I must say that it was like a full day at Summit. I can't say enough about the speakers and topics, they were fantastic.
Summit 2014 - November 4 - 7 - Seattle, WA
