SQL Relay 2017

SQL Relay took place between 9 – 13 October 2017. It was the end of my first year of being on the organising committee which has been great fun. 

The relay begin in Reading, moving to Nottingham, Leeds, Birmingham and ending Bristol. This year I helped out on site at 2 events Reading and Bristol. The event brought 4 tracks, 3 general tracks and a workshop track, to each venue. With only 1 hour in the morning before the event starts to set up, it is all hands on deck to get all the attendees registered and the event starting on time. We were lucky to have so many amazing volunteers who helped during the days and without sponsors and speakers we wouldn’t have been able to run the events. I became the event lead for Bristol and it  was nice to be able to bring the event back to the city this year. We enabled around 1000 people to be trained, enabled the SQL community to grow and for people to learn something new. It is a privilege to be a part of this unique event.
