Saturday, December 5, 2015: SQLSaturday#470 is on track to be an extraordinary event in DC this Saturday, with a fantastic lineup of speakers, sponsors and sessions.  It is worthy to mention that the SQLSaturday DC event has been running for six years now, and they are expecting over 350 attendees for learning, lunching, and networking.  Many of my good friends and colleagues will be there, presenting some awesome sessions on all things SQL Server. 

The SQLSatDC team has done their absolute best to provide a good mix of topics and skill levels, and confident that every attendee will find something of interest throughout the day. Remember, SQL Server is now part of the larger and strategic Microsoft Data Platform initiative. These include a variety of

solutions including SQL Server, Azure, Big Data, and BI predictive

analytics.  This push is the biggest

integration of all these technologies and evolving at rapid speed. At SQLSaturday#470, you will have exposure to all these emerging and latest technologies. Therefore there are multiple tracks of learning including BA, Application & Database Development, BI Platform Architecture, Development & Administration,Cloud Application Development & Deployment, Enterprise Database Administration & Deployment, Application & Database Development, Professional Development, Strategy and Architecture.  See the SCHEDULE HERE.

To kick off this deluctable DC dynamic event, this year the SQLSatDC team are excited to offer two amazing

Pre-Cons that should cover everything you may want to learn and know

about SQL Server.

The first is offered by Brent Ozar, and covers how to tune your SQL Server when you can't actually touch the code "Performance Tuning When You Can't Fix The Queries", and the second Pre-Con is with Dave Fackler and focuses on the BI solutions included with SQL Server, "BI Solutions from Start to Finish".  You can learn more and sign up on the main event home page, or by click the hyperlinks for each pre-con.
