October 2018 – Azure Data Platform Services Roadmap
SQL Social: Australia’s Premier Data Networking Event!
When: 2018/10/03 From 5:45pm – 8:00pm
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
Kristina Rumpff (Microsoft) – Azure Data Platform Services Roadmap
Kristina has been in IT for (shh don’t tell) 20 years. She started out working as a Web Developer and actually created Gary Lyons Website! From there she has worked as a Unix Administrator, Progress DBA, Oracle DBA, BizTalk Admin, Perl Scripter, and finally a SQL DBA. Kristina is currently working in the Customer Advisory Team (AzureCAT) at Microsoft.
Azure is a constantly changing platform.
With Ignite in the USA is currently in progress, there have been a huge number of announcements. There is so much happening it’s really hard to keep on top of what is happening and when.
In this session, Kristina will take 15 mins to go through Microsoft’s Azure Roadmap document and share what’s on it for all the Azure Data Platform services.
Once again we are fortunate to have wonderful sponsors on board who will ensure that we are suitably fed and watered. A big thank you to Lobsterpot Solutions and Pluralsight for their ongoing support of this great community event!
