Speaking at SQL Saturday Indianapolis 2019!

SQL Saturday Indianapolis is coming up quickly – it's in less than two weeks! I am very happy to be returning to Indy on Saturday, August 17 to deliver my session Dipping Your Toes Into Azure Data Lake for DBAs.

Abstract: As a data professional, you know what data is, and hopefully know what a lake is too. But what's a Data Lake? This session covers the very basics of Azure Data Lake, and is geared towards those who are familiar with relational databases and also curious about other technologies. Topics covered will include Data Lake storage, security basics, and an introduction to U-SQL, Azure Data Lake's query language. We will finish up with architecture examples showing real-world use cases highlighting Azure Data Lake's strengths. Attend this session to see how Azure Data Lake can complement your existing relational database skills, and give you a great new tool in your data toolbox!

If that sounds interesting to you, feel free to come see my session at 10:30 AM in room 109. Of course there's many more awesome sessions available there too, the organizers have put together an incredible schedule for the day.


And if one day of amazing training just isn't enough for you, consider attending a pre-conference session on Friday, August 16. Three are being offered this year, with details and registration information available at the links below:

It will be a great time in Indy, and I hope to see you there!
