Speaking at VS Live–Austin

I’ll be speaking at Visual Studio Live – Austin in May 2017. I was fortunate to be selected to speak again, after my first two VS Lives last year in DC and Orlando. I’m excited to go back, as the conference is a lot of fun, and Austin is a great town.


I have two sessions, Continuous Integration for Databases and A Tour of SQL Server 2016 Security Features. I’ve given similar sessions in the past, but I’m revamping the talks for this year, updating them and adding some new demos.

When I went to the conference(s) last year, I really enjoyed my time there. I had the chance to see some great SQL and Visual Studio sessions. With the upcoming release of VS 2017, and SQL Server v.Next, this is a good time to think about a spring conference.

Plus the margaritas and Tex-Mex in Austin is fantastic.

Hope to see you there if you want a learning opportunity this May. Register and use my code, AUSPK14 to save some money as well.
