We have had three seasons of Sql Friday and 71 amazing sessions have been presented. Although things around us move towards more and more in-person events, Sql Friday is going to remain an online event.
So what is Sql Friday?
Sql Friday is a weekly, 60-ish minute long presentation, running at noon Central European Time. People join via Teams and the presentations are recorded and later published to YouTube.
Presentations take place in Teams and invitations are sent out via Meetup - https://meetup.com/sql-friday.
Please note the time: Sql Friday happens on Fridays at noon Central European Time.
Which topics can I speak about?
Sql Friday is about Sql Server. So you can present anything Sql Server related. It can be "What Sql Server options are available in Azure and AWS" and it can be very in-depth technical sessions like "What the heck is this Eager Spool operator all about?" As long as it's about Sql Server, it's on-topic for Sql Friday.
What's new for season 4?
New for Season 4 is that I've added a Lightning Talk category. Depending on number of submissions, I will do one or more Lightning Talk Fridays, with five ten-minute Lightning Talks instead of just one 60-minute presentation.
I Accept that
By submitting to Sql Friday, you accept the Code of Conduct found here: https://sqlfriday.net/about/
You also accept that the presentation is recorded and will be available on YouTube later on.
You may submit up to three session abstracts.
When submitting your abstract, please select ALL the dates you are available to present. That makes scheduling of Sql Friday so much easier.
The presentation does _not_ need to be unique for Sql Friday, but if you can tweak it somehow so that it's not 100% the same as an already existing recording of your presentation, it'll add some bonus points for evaluation :)
This season, we're also doing Lightning Talks. A Lightning Talk is a ten minute presentation. We will do at least one Lightning Tak Friday. If we get many Lightning Talk submissions, we will do more, but at least one.
