SQLHangouts – The Next Generation

This post is part 1 of 4 in the series SQLHangouts

SQLHangoutsI have some bad news and some good news. The bad news is that Boris Hristov (@BorisHristov) will no longer be hosting SQLHangouts. He came up with the idea back in 2013 and have recorded 35 interesting videos, but he will now be focusing on his design agency 356labs.com.

The good news is that SQLHangouts are not dead! Boris has decided to hand it over to me. I must admit that it is a little intimidating to take over a project like this, but I am also really excited and looking forward to chatting with a bunch of wonderful and interesting people in the #SQLFamily :)

SQLHangouts – The Next Generation

The concept is simple – short 30-minute video chats with Microsoft Data Platform and SQL Server experts from all around the world. The videos are streamed live on YouTube and are also recorded and saved for later viewing. Fun!

All the recorded videos are available on the Facebook page and in my YouTube playlist. I have added the first 35 videos to the playlist already, and will add all new videos to it as soon as they are recorded and published.

(You can also find the first 35 videos in Boris’ YouTube playlist, and read all about them on his blog.)

What happens next?

The next SQLHangout is already scheduled for March 30th! In this episode, Koen Verbeeck (@Ko_Ver) and I will chat about why design matters in your Business Intelligence projects. We all know that report design is important, but do we need to care about the layout of our SSIS packages? We will also be joined by Boris, the special guest of the day. We can’t have a SQLHangout about why design matters without chatting about presentation design!

Watch the live stream on YouTube on March 30th at 22:00 CEST (UTC+2), and join the conversation on Twitter by using the hashtag #SQLHangout :)
