Category: Community and Events

Community! Events! These are two of my favorite things :) I love my #SQLFamily as much as I love teaching and sharing knowledge. And what better way to combine the two than staying involved in the community while participating in as many events as I can?

In this category, I write about upcoming events I’m SUPER EXCITED about and announce where I will be speaking next. I also link to resources like slide decks and videos from sessions I have presented, write recaps and post pictures from events I have attended, and share tips and advice for others who want to get involved by volunteering or speaking.

Azure Data Factory Training Day at SQLBits 2020

On March 31st, I will be presenting my A Day Full of Azure Data Factory training day at SQLBits 2020. Yay! 🤓

SQLBits is one of my absolute favorite events. I was literally jumping up and down when I got the news that I was selected as a speaker! 🥳 In addition to presenting a training day session, I will present a general session, and volunteer again on the other days. Woohoo!

If you are considering registering for SQLBits 2020, I highly recommend that you make a decision and register as soon as possible. Why? Because the prices go up on January 11th! Early bird pricing is only £999 for two full-day training days and three conference days. That’s a bargain! From January 11th, the price goes up to £1199. From February 15th, the price goes up to £1499.

You can also register for individual days. Check out the SQLBits pricing page for all the details, then go register!

I just realized I haven’t been to Belgium since I spoke at SQL Server Days 2015. Wow! That was four years ago. Four. Wow. About time for a new visit, then! :D

On Monday, I will be delivering a full-day Azure Data Factory precon. Then, on Tuesday morning, I’m presenting a brand new session called Creating Visual Data Transformations in Azure Data Factory. An hour just about Data Flows, yeah! I’m looking forward to it, and I hope to see you there.

Speaking at Techorama NL 2019

In just four weeks from now, I will be at Techorama NL 2019. Yay! :) This will be my first time attending Techorama, and I’m very excited to see what it’s like. It’s larger and broader than the data events I usually attend, so I’m looking forward to learning about new topics from speakers I have never seen live before.

Techorama NL 2019 Schedule

I will be presenting my Pipelines and Packages: Introduction to Azure Data Factory session on Wednesday, October 2nd from 8:45am – 9:45am. Join me if you want to learn the basics of Azure Data Factory :)

When I’m not presenting, I hope to attend as many of the other sessions as I can. And I do hope my data friends will forgive me for picking other types of sessions at this event ;) I don’t often go to events where I get to learn about accessibility, social engineering and CSS! :) These are the sessions I’m most looking forward to:
