[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:

public-speaking_thumb3_thumb_thumb_tConferences:

  • SharePoint Saturday London|London, England|9th July {SITE} | one session: AD 2016. 2AM A Disaster just began…
  • SQL Grillen|Lingen, Emsland, Germany|19th August {SITE} | one session: 2AM A Disaster just began… UNPLUGGED

Both events were amazing. But now need to focus on September, which looks like most busiest month this year.

 

Attendee:

To hear someone, to see someone, to meet someone, to be inspired. My plans are a little flexible (even my calendar is not):

Conferences:

  • CloudSEC 2016|London, England|06th Sep {SITE}
  • SharePoint Saturday Warsaw |Warsaw, Poland|17th Sep {SITE}
  • MCT Zero Day Atlanta|Atlanta, USA|24th Sep {SITE}

 

Speaker:

Speaking is most important part of all my events. As many of us – The Speakers – we love it. So, of course I will have some chance to increasing my speakers skills here:

  • Microsoft IGNITE|Atlanta, USA|26th-30th Sep {SITE} | breakout session: Secure your data at rest – on demand, now!

 

Trainer:

  • SQL Server Administration Fundamentals|Manchester, England|12th-14th Sep

 

Special Events:

Two special events will held in Poland:

  • Microsoft Influencers Summit | Saturday, September 10th | Warsaw, Poland
  • 10th Anniversary of ISSA Poland | Friday, September 16th | Warsaw, Poland

And more special events will happen around MCT Zero Day and Microsoft Ignite Conference in Atlanta. Majority of them will be mingling, talking, tasting new food and new beers

  • Azure Networking Reception  | Tuesday, September 27th
  • MetaFest by Metalogics | Wednesday, September 28th
  • Pleasant Evening by Wizdom | Wednesday September 28th

As You can see, a lot of places and dates where  you can meet me. Hope you will find a moment to say Hi!

 

Post Scriptum:

Missed events:

Unfortunately based on extremely busy scedule for September (only five days at home through all month) I had no choice and must decline attendance for two fantastic events at this month::

  • SharePoint & SQL Saturday in Cambridge |Cambridge, England|10th Sep | {LINK}
  • SQL Saturday No 534 FIRST IN POLAND!!! |Cracow, Lesser Poland|01st Oct | {LINK}

I’m sorry my friends, but It’s not possible to be in same time in two different places yet…

[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:

Nielsen Robert Panther Lars Platzdasch Markus Raatz Uwe Ricken Roland Rosenau Michael Rys Dejan Sarka Christoph Seck Frank Seiwerth Wolfgang Strasser Torsten Strauss Marcel Tilly Klaus Wagner Dandy Weyn Sven Wolf Andreas Wolter

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}.
