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?

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.

My first 30 days at Microsoft

microsoft-azure-bannerWhoa, time flies – I’ve already bee at Microsoft for a full 30 days. I feel like it was just yesterday i joined Azure Team in Denmark, but it has actually been 30 days. these 30 days have been filled with information, most of it under NDA, making it so much more interesting actually know whats going on, and not just being feed bits and pieces, when standing on the outside of the fence. The sheer amount of information is kinda overwhelming, and the ability to just ask a program group or program manager, and actually get an answer is just amazing.

Been assigned one customer to service as my primary, and as a Data Solution Architect, the future looks really bright, the client is on the move to go all in on Azure and it’ll be a game changer for both the client and Microsoft, so I am looking very much forward to doing business and advising them.

sqlnexusDa PASS har valgt at der ikke kommer til at blive afholdt flere SQL Rally, er der opstået et tomrum. Det ville betyde at der ikke rigtigt ville være andre decideret SQL Server events på Skandinavisk jord end brugergruppe møder og selvfølgelig SQL Saturday.

Det bliver et fantastisk program, mange lokale speakere og rigtig mange store internationale speakere. Ydermere er det en konference, der har fået Microsoft til at stille med de helt rigtige speakere fra Redmond og Program managers fra eks. PowerBI temaet og SQL Server gruppen. Continue reading →
