• Baton Rouge User Groups Networking Night 2018

    What is Networking Night?

    Many professional organizations have an annual meeting dedicated to career development and professional networking. 
    Networking Night is a special User Group format where we will have several short-format talks, networking and career development, and an opportunity for Baton Rouge SQL Saturday sponsors to have an official presence to do recruiting, evangelism, etc.  

    We need speakers with 7-10 minute talks! Sign up to speak at the event here!  

    Who should attend? Everyone should attend free Networking Night! Starting in 2014 and through 2017, each year 50+ IT professionals including many newcomers attended this fun event! 
    Are you a Gold or Platinum sponsor of SQLSaturday Baton Rouge 2018? Part of your sponsorship comes with an official presence at Networking Night! Please join us and fill out the speaker signup form.

    Instead of a regular user group meeting, Networking Night is open to everyone in the Baton Rouge IT community, for free!
