Went along to SQL Saturday BI Edition on 13th of June.
Honestly I thought it was really great. Many thanks to Jenny Stirrup for being the event organiser. If you are thinking about going next year you really should.

This was the schedule for SQL Saturday in Edinburgh

Sessions I attended
Key Note with Jon Woodward – on long term future of computing in general
Web Scraping with Python – Iain Elder of Sky Scanner
Better Data Visualisation for CRM and ERP – Adam Vero
The European Economic Crisis and the Euro-A Data Tale – Carmel Gunn
Blue Sky Thinking : SQL Azure Geospatial Mashup – Thomas Sykes
Master Data Management – Dave Lawrence

All the talks were really thought provoking and nice to hear from people who are really at the top of the game. I have already started experimenting with Web Scraping and Python.
