I was writing about a number of different SQLSaturday events in the previous months, without even mentioning the most important of them all for me. The one that I have been working for months (actually since July of the 2013), the one I have been running since 2011 and the eldest SQLSaturday outside of the Northern America – SQLSaturday Lisbon, Portugal.
On 12th of April of 2014 everyone working with SQL Server, Business Intelligence & who loves community will be meeting at Microsoft Portugal to celebrate the 4th edition of the event that has grown steadily in the past 3 years, delivering the highest possible quality of the content and giving a free opportunity to learn from the best.
