Speaking at SQL Konferenz next week

darmstadtTime flies, next week it is already time for the annual SQL Konferenz in Darmstadt, Germany. There I will be giving a speak on Azure Data Lake Store and Azure Data Lake Analytics, and how these can be used in different scenarios. It will be a session filled with technical information and lots of demos.

In conjunction with this, I have been asked to join Data Exposed Studio, a panel discussion together with
Oliver Engels (Panel Host) (L | T), Michael Rys (L | T) and Sascha Dittmann (L | T) – at this panel discussion we will debate The U in Big Data – Do we need a new language?

Data Exposed Studio is a panel discussion, which will be recorded on Video. The format is 45min
long and starts 15 minutes after the parallel sessions in a small TV studio we will setup at the conference.
There will be room for approx. 15 people as audience in the studio.
