It’s the most wonderful time of the year. At least, it is for our developers! SQL Saturday is right around the corner (August 1st to be exact) and this year, we’re dubbing SQL Saturday Baton Rouge “The Takeover.” This year is jam-packed with Envoceans, each speaking on subjects near and dear to their hearts.

Whether you plan to run your own consulting business, be a freelancer, or be a healthy part of a software or design team, you will need to understand the importance of engaging both your left- and right-brain in the future. Sure, you are smart and you have a good left-brain, but raw processing power, reasoning, and logic are not enough to compete, provide, or even survive in the coming "Conceptual Age." Just as manufacturing automation put much of the "human back" out of business in the Industrial Age, certain forces threaten to put the "human brain" out of business in the age to come. This talk will prepare you for its arrival and insulate you for its duration. Learn how to recognize and utilize the value of well-rounded thinking as you progress throughout your career.
As always, the Envoc booth will make an appearance, but this time we’ll be bringing something new. Can you guess what it is?
We can’t wait to see you at SQL Saturday Baton Rouge!
