[EN] T-7 Days till my next session… at SQLSat Holland

LOGO__SQLSatHolland2015A week in advance announcement. I’m very happy to be one of the speakers at upcoming SQL Saturday No 434 in Utrecht. It will be my third SQL Saturday – after one in Cambridge (Sept 12) where I only work as room monitor, and today’s very exciting session in Copenhagen. If you follow me you probably well know that I have been in The Netherlands just few days ago. On Friday before SQL Saturday in Cambridge I delivered two sessions at Software Developer Network Event in Zeist. This time I will go to Netherland for few days. After night trip NOT-LGW then flight to AMS and another short trip to Utrecht I will be there from Thursday noon till Sunday morning.

This time SQL Saturday will be a two-day-event for me. On Friday [25th September] I will deliver full day pre-conf seminar, as well as two other great (greatest than me) speakers:

  • WASD-A Journey from Zero to be Hero | Tobiaz Koprowski |L200
  • Data Mining Algorithms in SQL Server, Excel, R and Azure ML | Dejan Sarka |L300
  • Understanding Execution Plans | Hugo Kornelis |L400

It’s very exciting. It’s my second SQL Saturday Pre-Conf Seminar; the first one I delivered in Kiev a year ago. I know that there is not as much attendees registered now (in compare of famous pre-conf by Dejan and Hugo) but I’m sure that, we will have a very interesting, full of knowledge and discussions training day.

On Saturday [26th September] (this time my session will be served at early morning) each of attendees can choose from several sessions delivering by many great speakers:

Klaus Aschenbrenner + Bob Duffy + M Streutker + David Williams + Denny Cherry + Aaron Bertrand + Gabi Münster + Scott Klein + Joost van Rossum + Neil Hambly + Matija Lah + Jan Pieter Posthuma + Tanja Vukov + Janko Radusinovic + Edgar Walther + David Postlethwaite + Hugo Kornelis + Jan Van humbeek + Niels Naglé + Hylke Peek + Henk van der Valk + John Martin + Hugo Kornelis + Henk Vlootman + Leonard Lobel + Joseph D’Antoni + Dandy Weyn + Niall MacLeod + Sander van der hoeff + Dejan Sarka + Peter Jonk

Speakers from both sides of Atlantic, from Central Europe, few Islands, even Balkan territory.  A lot of of discussions, coffees, comments, swags, networking opportunities and Saturday full of knowledge. And local beer from Utrecht (i hope..)

I will present one of my newest session SQL Security in the Cloud at 9:00 AM in Zaal A

The capitol of Denmark was always one of my favourite city. Even I never had enough time for sightseeing. This time will be a little different. My short trip to Copenhagen will start on Friday night with route: NOT-STN-CPH. So after morning landing in Copenhagen I will have few hours to sightseeing Copenhagen. We have scheduled Speaker Dinner very famous and probably good place named: Copenhagen streetfood on Papirsøen, so even that I’ve chance for some evening/night pictures.
