Speaking at SQL Saturday Madison 2015!
I'm definitely a fan of Wisconsin. I never really developed a taste for beer, but I do love Culver's and cheese curds, so that counts, right? I'm also very happy to be presenting at SQL Saturday #387 in Madison on April 11 2015!
I had a blast at SQL Saturday Madison in 2012 and 2013. Last year I missed it, but with good reason – I was speaking at SQL Saturday Boston instead. I'm very happy to be heading back, though, and am looking forward to seeing friends and sitting in on some sessions by the other speakers in their amazing lineup.
My presentation this time around talks about all the wonderful new features in SQL Server 2014 other than In-Memory OLTP, more commonly known as "Hekaton", which was it's feature codename. Whenever SQL Server 2014 is brought up, Hekaton is usually one of the first things that comes to mind. It's even got it's own Wikipedia Page. It's a neat feature, but SQL Server 2014 offers plenty of other awesomeness that far more people will benefit from. This session gives those other features some much-deserved love, and shows attendees how they can take advantage of all the new improvements.
If you haven't already signed up for SQL Saturday Madison, do it soon – spots are filling up fast! Registration is still open as of right now. I hope to see you there!
