May #SQLChat – “Uncovering Data Modeling Myths”

by Apr 19, 2016

Our next #SQLChat will take place Wednesday, May 11 at 11 AM CT with host Karen Lopez (@datachick) as she leads a conversation exploring the myths and misunderstandings that surround data modeling.

This #SQLChat will allow members from the SQL community to discuss SQL Server’s biggest topics with IDERA product experts, and have a chance to win a giveaway prize. It will be a great opportunity to share tips, opinions and personal experiences surrounding data modeling.

In honor of Star Wars Day taking place a week prior, this month’s giveaway prize will be Star Wars: The Complete Saga (Blu-Ray) Box Set!
