Author: Eric Russo | | September 24, 2015

Recently several of our DBAs based in and around Bangalore had the opportunity to attend the SQLServerGeeks Annual Summit 2015 (SSGAS), which took place over three days and featured expert sessions from industry leaders and Microsoft SQL Server experts from far and wide. Datavail SQL Server DBA, Srinivas Yejju was in attendance and provided us a great summary of some of the highlights of the conference. Here’s what he had to say.

Pre-Conference: “Wow – The preconference was a day-long class attended by world-renowned experts and SQL gurus who provided in depth knowledge about today’s SQL Server technology trends. Some of those featured were Power BI by Alberto Ferrari, SQL Server Query Tuning and Optimization by Benjamin Nevarez, Storage and Virtualisation by Denny Cherry and Moving from Relational Data to Big Data by Praveen Srivatsa. I attended the session “Moving from Relational to Big Data” and it was that’s really amazing, a great experience to be a part of.”

Main Conference: “It’s unbelievable. More than 40 international SQL experts delivered more than 70 sessions in 3 days. There were 20+ speakers from SQL CAT team who shared their knowledge, real time experience and gave valuable suggestions on various topics. To name a few:

  • High Availability and Disaster Recovery
  • Business prediction using Azure Machine Learning
  • Query Optimization
  • Transactional Replication
  • And much, much more

More over all the speakers were very friendly and answered our queries without fatigue. This conference has been one of the best experiences. We met marvellous people from all over the world, learned a lot from each of them and have tons of lasting memories now.

This conference definitely helped us explore and enhance the technical expertise of the team. Events like these broaden our discipline and proficiency, on and off the field, which is invaluable to our endeavours.“
