Off to SQLBits XVI

Off to SQLBits XVI

6th April 2017 0 By Craig

Myself and a few colleagues head off to SQLBits XVI in Telford today! I have quite a few sessions in mind. I just hope I can decide between a few conflicts!

I highly recommend it, following my first time last year. I met a few people that have helped & inspired me over the last 12 months. This blog probably wouldnt exist otherwise.

Ill update this post over the weekend & please drop a comment if you’re coming along!

UPDATE (Sat 8th April):

I had a great day on Friday, taking in sessions from Kasper de Jonge, Chris Webb, Alberto Ferrari and Adam Saxton (Guy in a Cube)

Alberto Ferrari’s session on multibillion row tables in tabular model was immensely helpful in addressing performance concerns in a few projects Im currently working on. Adam Saxton answered a ton of questions around the On-premise data gateway for PowerBI during his session and confirmed some facts in his slides that I used in a Gateway presentation at the Glasgow SQL user group, which was reassuring!

Chris Webb’s session on Azure Analysis services highlighted just how easy it is to get an SSAS instance up and running in Azure.

A long day ended in a great party. Hats off to the SQLBits organisers for really pushing the boat out on the DISCO theme!
