Saturday Morning

Review the Map and Parking Locations. Look for the Large Blue flags to help you find locations to park and where to go they will guide you to the building. We will also have SQL Saturday signs that will help you find the location.

Registration

You do not need to print anything to bring to the registration table. Just have your name and we will look you up in the system. You will be given a badge, lunch ticket, bag and shirt. The shirts are first come first serve, we do have a chance of running out with how many registrations we have. If you come early you have a better chance of getting a shirt. The Shirts have 4 different sayings on them. If you want to change the shirt for another saying please chat with another attendee about switching shirts or wait till after the first session to switch at the registration desk. This is so we can keep registration moving smoothly.

Prizes

We have lots of great prizes to give out.

  1. Journey Team will be giving away an Xbox one
  2. Profisee will be giving away a Dell Venue pro Tablet
  3. Dell will also be giving away a Dell tablet

These are just some of the few prizes to give away. To be entered to win these prizes please visit the sponsor booth. For most sponsors they will just need to scan your badge and you will be entered. Some of the sponsors may have you fill out a form to be entered for the prizes. We will hand out prizes at the end of the day in the open area around registration. You must be present to win at the end of the day.

Ask the Experts Room

We have reserved a whole session room in the afternoon to give you the chance to chat with experts in the area of data. Consider this a chance for you to bounce ideas off others, perhaps ask some other experts about a new architecture/design you are working on. Get a review from experts on the design you just published to production and what pitfalls you might run into. This is your chance to really whiteboard with an expert something you have been considering or want to know. Bring your ideas and problems and get them solved!

Session Feedback

We will have a new way for you to provide feedback for each session.

  1. You will be able to scan a QR code with each room you go into and that will bring up a survey in a browser window on your phone
  2. The Schedule located here. Will have a link to a survey form for each session.

Good feedback is critical to speakers so they can improve their speaking abilities. We hope that you will take the time to provide feedback. Please be detailed in your feedback and tell the speakers what they can do to improve. Things like “Speaker needs to talk louder”,”Speaker needs to engage audience”,”Speaker should be better prepared and have tested demo to make sure it worked properly”. All of these things help the speakers to improve specific parts of the session.

Event Feedback

We will send out an email Saturday morning to all registered attendees with a link to take a survey about the event. We always strive to improve our events and we hope you can help us do that by providing feedback.

Be Respectful

Finally we think this barely needs mentioning because we have an awesome membership! Please be courteous and respectful of others. We want you to debate and discuss technology and find ways to make things better for everyone and we want everyone to enjoy themselves.

Thank you

We have record attendance at this event and we need help! We are seeking volunteers to help direct traffic between the first couple sessions and at lunch time. If you are willing to help please email volunteers@utahgeekevents.com

Lunch

You will be given a bag when you register in the morning with a ticket inside the bag for lunch. The red ticket will be for the 1st floor and the blue ticket will be for the 3rd floor. We don’t mind where you end up but please pick up your lunch on the floor based on the ticket you received. We will be separating lunch across the 1st and 3rd floors so that everyone can move through the lunch lines quickly. Our location has asked that we not eat in the classrooms but instead use the hall/open space areas. We will be providing box lunches so that this is easy for you to sit down in an open area and eat. A cafe is located on the 5th floor with lots of room to sit. Lots of other open areas exist throughout the building as well.
