I’m currently helping to plan Pittsburgh’s next SQL Saturday. It should be a good day with lots of good sessions by some new (see Steve Hood‘s post here) and some returning speakers.
I’m personally looking forward to the session onÂ Statistical Semantic Search. It’s something I haven’t used before.
Here is the current brochure. If you haven’t signed up yet, what are you waiting for?!
