This Event is for You
We welcome everyone interested in the Microsoft data platform. Our focus in on the SQL Server ecosystem and Microsoft's data-related Azure cloud services, but we have sessions on other related topics, including universally applicable professional development advice.
Our sessions range from introductory to advanced, so you're sure to find something appropriate for your level of expertise.
We guarantee you will learn something and meet someone new.

We plan to have several tracks of 5 one-hour sessions with plenty of time for networking starting around 8 AM and ending around 5 PM, with closing remarks and raffle drawings taking another half hour or so. A formal schedule will be announced closer to the event.
Our initial sponsor rates are already available but we plan to add more tiers and sponsorship opportunities within a few days.
We have a short call for speaker submissions ending on July 23rd, so please read about some of our unique opportunities and submit your ideas.
We plan to host one or more full day pre-conference sessions on Friday, October 6th. Please submit a pre-conference session abstract through this system if you are interested in being a pre-con speaker.
We are planning on serving a hot buffet lunch, probably pasta, so we are charging a lunch fee of $15, which is refundable until September 6th. Any lunch fees paid after September 6th will not be refundable. Those without a lunch ticket will not be served lunch, but you are welcome to bring your own food. There are not restaurants within walking distance.
