SQL Saturday Plovdiv

Last weekend, Adatis made our first (of many appearances) at a Bulgarian SQL Server event - SQL Saturday Plovdiv. We’ve been busy recently setting up our new office in Sofia but had yet to engage with the local SQL community, so we were very excited to become involved and meet the local community members.

Adatis were gold sponsors at SQL Plovdiv and there were roughly 200 attendees - Terry, Simon and I presented sessions on T-SQL, Azure SQLDW and SSIS.

Overall the event went well, sessions were popular. Attendees were very friendly and people were interested and keen to engage with us. We we excited to receive applications from talented candidates that had good potential to join our fledgling Bulgarian team (one insisting on attending our sessions to make sure we weren’t full of hot air!).

The next event in Sofia should be larger and we are hoping to repeat this success and learn from the Plovdiv conference to try and make the Sofia one better still. The aim is to contribute to and increase awareness of Adatis within the Bulgarian community, present great sessions and also to help us try and find new recruits to join the Bulgarian team Smile If you happen to be near to Sofia and are interested in finding out more about what we do or would like to work with us, please do feel free to contact us using the details on the main website.
