Sometimes one receives amazing gifts at the most unexpected moment. I was beyond thrilled to find out that I was selected to present a precon (workshop) at the biggest, the most important and the most celebrated Microsoft Data Platform Conference in Europe – the SQLBits. For me personally this will be one of the highlights of my professional career, even though I have co-delivered a workshop at SQLBits with Andreas Wolter in 2014, this time I will have nobody to support. This time it will be very different and I am deeply honoured by this chance and by this amazing opportunity.
Without any surprises you will find out that I will talking about Columnstore Indexes, since the workshop is named “Columnstore Indexes – from basics to optimised analytics” and you can register for it now.
This workshop will be a 1 day version of my 2 days Columnstore workshop, with larger focus on the Operational Analytics and SQL Server 2016 in general. I will be diving into some of the details that are still not published, optimisations and limitations of the newest Columnstore implementations plus I will be showing my CISL tool and it’s new version that will be presented for the first time at SQLBits exclusively.
Given that I will be doing much less presentations outside of Portugal, this will be one of 3-4 opportunities to catch me speaking in 2016.
