SQL Saturday #380 in New York City. May 30, 2015

SQL Saturday in NYC is big regional event.
Besides of speaking I've tried to volunteer as a photographer.
I did not make a very good job: did not catch all speakers and not squeezed in all corners for all interesting happenings, but I tried my best.

Before the beginning I want to advertize couple of other related posts:
- Night Before SQL Saturday in Newark, NJ;
- New York City 2015. Central Park, Metropolitan Art Museum and Night Cruise;

And now SQL Saturday!

Here are the first folks at the event before the opening of the Microsoft office, which vos the event's venue.

At the entrance everybody got a security badge to get to the building.
