[EN] SEPTEMBER 2016 and my public speaking and presence

Holiday moths are over. It wasn’t strictly holiday for me. In July and August I delivered few trainings in United Kingdom (in almost every week of those two months), attended for two or three small events and speak on two community events:

[EN/DE] SQL Konferenz – Du Riechst So Gut!

LOGO__SQLKonferenz2016Der SQL Server 2016, der aktuell als Preview heruntergeladen werden kann, bietet viele neue Features und wird seitens Microsoft als Quantensprung in der Geschichte der Microsoft Plattform bezeichnet! Grund genug für uns, noch größer, noch spannender und mit noch mehr Inhalt als in den vorherigen 2 Jahren an den Start zu gehen:

  • PreCon mit 3 Deep Dive Workshops
  • 2 Tage MainCon mit 6 Tracks
  • mehr als 40 internationale und nationale Speaker
  • weit über 40 Vorträge

Neben dem “Was gibt es Neues?” und “Was sollte ich unbedingt wissen?” werden wir auch in diesem Jahr wieder Partner vor Ort haben, die sich mit ihren Produkten und Ideen ergänzend einbringen, und natürlich die PASS Deutschland e.V. – die SQL Server Community, die ihre Erfahrungen gerne mit allen teilt.

Wait! What? Five months ago I got message to my inbox:

we have closed the call for papers and our expert reviewers are going through all the sessions we received from the community. Thank you for your proposals! We are happy to confirm your session “SQL Security in the Cloud”. Further details concerning the conference which will be held on February 24th and 25th, 2016, in Darmstadt near Frankfurt, will follow within the next 2 weeks.

Today it’s just eve of my trip to Darmstadt. It will be my first big conference in this year and first focusing on Data Platform. SQL Konferenz is the biggest SQL Conference in Germany. This year attendees could attend for one of three great workshops:

  • Data Mining Algorithms in SSAS, Excel, R, and Azure ML by Dejan Sarka {TWITTER|BLOG}
  • Agile Data Warehousing: Start to Finish by Davide Mauri {TWITTER|BLOG}
  • SSIS Performance Design Patterns by Matt Masson {TWITTER|BLOG}

After pre-conference day (Tuesday) next two days wil be splitted for three different tracks with a lot of great speakers arround the world:

On Thursday afternoon at SQL Konferenz I will present new version or my “SQL Server in the Cloud” session focusing on SQL Server, Cloud Services and of course newest of the new SQL Server 2016 CTP 3.3. But it’s not all!

Surprisingly, today I got invitation for another challenge with additional track SQL Data Exposed focusing on security. I will be one of the panelist in special Conference Video Studio where we will discuss about security arround Data Platform. I’m not sure about NDA of othe panelists – but I’m sure that I can announce our host – mein Freund aus Deutschland Herr Andreas Wolter {MVP, MCM, MCSM from Sarpedon Quality Labs}.
