High Tea: The only underground session during the fall summit…so far as we know.
Hi all! Our annual, coincides-with-the-big-fall-SQL-conference event IS happening again this year! This year, and probably forevermore, this event shall be named High Tea. Because we’re a bunch of classy, classy people.
If you’re unfamiliar with it, High Tea is our annual nonsanctioned, after-PASS event where we get to swear and be vulgar and truly disgusting. The original idea was to present sessions that just won’t fit in a regular conference – sometimes that means bad language, or something suggestive, and sometimes because it’s simply way, way off topic. It’s way fun, and it’s held for charity (charity TBD). It will be held on Wednesday evening at 10pm, in Charlotte, NC….likely in walking distance of the conference.
If you’d like to go,
- If you’ve never been before, get approval: Email Nic at SirSQL.net with a short essay. The topic should be anything vulgar, or full of swearing. We just want you to show you’re one of us…
- Buy tix: Once approved (or if you’ve been to one of these already), submit your $20 contribution to PayPal (see the PayPal button below).
- Spread the word: Tell others like you about this event. This is VERY important! We need people at the event for this to be a continuing success.
- And then: Bask in the glow of impending High Tea-osity. Also, maybe buy a top hat and monocle. CLASSY, I said!
If this just isn’t your thing, don’t go! We want attendees to have fun.
Call for Speakers: Email me (Jen at MidnightDBA.com) if you’re interested in presenting a 5-10 minute talk, poem, silent slide show, or whatever. Think, “anything I couldn’t present at a con, but really want to”. We’ve had some brilliant and/or disgusting presentations in past years…none of which I can mention, because we have a pretty strict code of secrecy.
IF you want to present but you’re nervous about ruining your reputation, email me. We’ll talk.
Edit: SPONSOR! We have a sponsor again this year!
