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.
On October 4-5, I will be at Data Saturday Holland 2019! With 42 sessions and 600+ attendees, this is the event for Microsoft Data Platform professionals in Holland. Grab your ticket today and join us!
On Friday, I will be delivering a full-day Azure Data Factory precon. Then, on Saturday morning, I’m presenting a session called Building Dynamic Data Pipelines in Azure Data Factory. It will be a busy couple of days for me since I’m coming straight from Techorama NL 2019! But I’m very much looking forward to it :) Hope to see you there!
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.
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:
On Friday, September 13th, I will be speaking at DATA:Scotland 2019. And not just once, but twice, yay :D
I had the pleasure of speaking and volunteering at last year’s event (when it was called SQLGLA) and I’m so happy that I get to go back this year! The organizers have done a fantastic job of making this a fun, inclusive event. They are both supporting newcomer speakers and have a strong focus on building their local community. Woop woop! And if one event wasn’t enough, they are also running two fringe events on AI and Data Modernization. How cool is that! And the best part? It’s all free :)
DATA:Scotland 2019 Schedule
This year, I will be presenting two sessions!
The first is my Pipelines and Packages: Introduction to Azure Data Factory session. It’s… well, it’s exactly what it sounds like! You can read the abstract below.
The other is a new session called Improving Your Presentation Skills – Practical Examples by Two Very Different Speakers. This is going to be SO MUCH FUN! The one and only Alexander Arvidsson (@arcticdba) has agreed to participate in this experiment with me, yay :D We both love presenting and we have both delivered sessions on presentation skills, but we have very different styles and personalities. In this session, we will be sharing our top tips and showing a few different ways of doing things.
We’re super excited!
SUPER EXCITED!!! :D
If Azure Data Factory or speaking is not your thing, check out the full schedule. There are so many great sessions this year!
I will be presenting a new session called Understanding Azure Data Factory: The What, When, and Why. This is an overview session, focused on how Azure Data Factory can fit into larger Business Intelligence, Data Science and Machine Learning projects. We will look at some cool features in Azure Data Factory, but we will not be diving deep into the technology itself. (If you are more interested in that, check out my Azure Data Factory Deep Dives instead.)
I’m also very much looking forward to attending the other sessions scheduled at this Data Soup Virtual Summit:
