Month: April 2018
SQL Social: Australia’s Premier Data Networking Event!
When: 2018/05/02 From 5:45pm – 7:45pm
Where: The Governors Lounge, The Royal Melbourne Hotel, 629 Bourke Street Melbourne, VIC, Australia
Food & Drinks will be provided.
SQL Social brings together Database & BI professionals, industry experts and those with an appetite for learning more about data & information management, in a relaxed atmosphere to network, share ideas, impart knowledge, and have a great time whilst doing so.
We will provide you with plenty of food and drinks for the evening, all thanks to our fantastic sponsors (see below).
This is not your usual SQL Server User Group event. At SQL Social our aim is to give YOU the opportunity to meet with MVPs, well-known speakers, experienced professionals & industry experts and ask them about the data-related topics that matter to you. It is an opportunity to meet new people, make new friendships and find out what is going on in the data industry in Melbourne.
As we have mentioned at previous events, we want to encourage you to take your first steps as a new speaker. As an incentive, every speaker will receive a free 1 month PluralSight subscription as a thank you. We only need a short 10 minute or so session on any SQL Server related topic – from an interesting query technique to an overview of the functionality of a component. Contact us if you’d like to have a go.
This Month’s Speaker and Topic
Helen Gross – R and Python Showcase
Helen Gross has 10+ years in the SQL/BI space mostly focusing on Microsoft BI stack (SSIS, SSAS and SSRS) with some PowerBI and more recently some ML.
She has worked across Health, Finance, Energy and Transport.
In SQL Server 2017, using Machine Learning Services we can now run both R and Python in the database.
In this session, Helen will demonstrate how this is done and focus on some use cases for each using some mind-blowing datasets.
So be prepared for a wild ride!
